(When our oldest daughter was 
in high school, she did not have a 
date to the prom or military ball
so I did not make plans to get a 
dress..She came in the day before 
the event after school and said that
she had a date..That gave me twenty
four hours to come up with a dress..
I had only $20 left until next paycheck
and no credit card..I went to the 
fabric store and got fabric and pattern.

The dress had 12 gores and it was floor 
length..I stayed up until 2 am sewing up
a dress for her to wear the next eve..)

Tears of a child

I hear
Each night she cries
Tears like crystalline rain;
They pierce my heart like frozen knives,
Sink deep

A poem by my daughter

The sun 
making the man 
look at his dark shadow

Their eyes

To my daughters

Her eyes
Searching the stars
To share her song, her heart
A clearing in the woods, hazel
Her eyes
Like azure skies
Reflecting in water
Absorbing all that life offers
Her eyes
That cannot lie
The goodness that lies
Within clouds to water God's fields

Daughter of Fall's twilight walks on moistened garden, awakening sweet contentment from earth. Such lure calms fresh meadows as tinted boughs flutter with evening's washed golden pallet, her gift. Eve Roper's Autumn Stroll Cinquain 10/25/2015

Parent's Plea

Dear God
I pray they’re safe
When they are gone, in school
Let them know our love, come home safe
To us

I'm Sorry Girls

Mommas sorry I took you from
The only life that you knew of

Mommas sorry I took you away
From your world of friends of every day

Mommas sorry you had to adjust
To brand new teacher’s and studious musts

Mommas sorry you haven’t fit in
To a school of strangers and what had been

Mommas sorry I had no other choice
Than to sooth your fears using my voice

Mommas sorry if you feel all alone
But I’ll guide you through this fearful unknown

Mommas sorry you’ve tried so very hard
Still nothing has changed, all but new scars

Mommas sorry for the sudden change
Adapt my daughters to all that’s strange

Give me time to help you feel at ease
Give me the moment to help you please

Children (Cinquain - I believe?)

Children -
little people.
Laughing, running, playing.
Emotional, excited things -
