Seeing Double

You may recall our worries for the two.
We needed prayers for them when they were new.

They have turned into active little girls.
With matching big brown eyes and bouncing curls.

Sweet Avis Jean and happy Raye Kristine
Are just the brightest pair I’ve ever seen.

Only their Mom and Dad know which is which.
They do not need witch costumes to bewitch.

They recently had birthday number two
And now think there is nothing they can’t do.

Although she cannot tell the two apart,
They truly are in charge of Grandma’s heart.

( I checked on line 2 to see if prayers could possibly be counted as two.  It is not. So each line has ten syllables.
