Grace 1

        
        A Girl even as a toddler her tiny hands cuddles a doll
	She sits on the ground properly, covers her shoulders with a shawl 
	Take her baby doll to her lap, rock and sings, her favourite lullaby 
	She bathes her, combs her hair, feeds her, even changes her doll’s nappy
	A Mother’s care for her child is shown even before she could walk
	Nature is so strange, like a grown up woman how she plays this roll
	She couldn’t be parted she sleeps with her doll beside her pillow
	Wherever she goes her doll is dragged along the pavement safely 
	A Girl even as a toddler
	She rapidly marches to her luscious youth so sweet her next call 
	Wrapped up in the Mother Nature’s gifts she endured not knowingly
	Her love and compassion for every being expressed vividly
	The motherly affection throughout her life, greatest love is shown
	A Girl even as a toddler

    Great work describing how it is when children are small..They start young playing their role as feminine or masculine..Your visits are encouraging..My husband is doing well after the surgery..I got a good night's rest last night..Sara
