Child Of Beauty

Written for my Granddaughter Jasmine, when she was very young

 

Child, Of Beauty.

 

Fine wisps of hair the wind is blowing,

Caressing cheeks so soft and fair.

But when that grin lights up her face,

The sunbeams glow just everywhere.

 

She runs around, all screams and laughter

As old man chases her about.

Oh, Lord this child is filled with living,

It don’t take long to find this out!

 

“Cookie, cookie” that’s her mantra,

Her words have such appealing charm.

The old man looks with eyes for loving

And says “Well one won’t do no harm”

 

Now she’s laughing, now she’s dancing

As old man, weary, laughs with joy.

He’s young again, a tiny sprite,

All inhibitions now destroyed.

 

And then her Mummy comes to get her

And boy! The old man’s worn in two.

But roll on till the next occasion

“She’s beautiful” I’m telling you”
