Growing up to be a Woman [A Quatern for Women's Day]

You're a blessing in every form
a cuddly creature, thumb in mouth
wobbly feet doing rock n roll
to clap and cheer of those around

doted daughter for favorite dad
you're a blessing in every form
for mom who perms your girly curls
all do fancy your loving hugs

Growing up soon in sweet sixteen
your youthful charm truly pristine
you're a blessing in every form
all Tom cats have a crush on you

When two hearts start to beat as one
it's time to wear you wedding gown
for your man who takes sacred vows
you're a blessing in every form

An awesome dedication from a gentleman like you indeed Raj.
You make me feel proud to be a woman. I'm.
Thank you.

PS. not sure about "doted daughter" [doting?] maybe...Not sure .. let's see what others should say.


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

Thanks for the visit and read. You surely have every reason to be proud, every day, women's day is just an excuse :)

as for doted and doting I will wait to listen to other's shout...fortunately both are having 2 syllables

have a fabulous day...a good opportunity for every woman to claim a gift from her

I am Director of the Mentor Program and for the time you were in the shop you were my student, so consider this a trip to the principal's office.
You complained in the workshop that you could not understand anapest much less join the two meters.
Then you write this.
Scan it if you dare. It is a catalytic mixture of iamb and anapest. It is, in other words, exercise three.
I think you need to stick around for Part Two and if nothing else listen and comment. You will learn something new.
Excellent poem. Metrically imaginative.

W. H. Snow

A poet is a nightingale, who sits in darkness and sings to cheer its own solitude with sweet sounds. Percy Bysshe Shelley

Thanks for the visit and your comment. Obviously I can't turn down the summons of the Principal so will head back to the Meter WS soon.
