3-18 Celebrate!

This weekend, Chris’ sister Barbara is with us mainly to spend as much time with Emma as possible. Also today is my soulmate’s birthday! I chose one of my early poems about Emma.

The Longest Day Continued 1


Emma, Emma, making such a fuss,

Squirming, whining, writhing, scowling, burping…

Gramps bites his tongue so he dares not cuss,

Wiggling, groaning, struggling, glowering, pharting…

Gramps fights the urge to dive under a bus.


The Longest Day Continued 2


Emma, Emma, is so happy

When she’s fed by her grand pappy.

But when he’s ready for her nappy,

She groans and grunts another crappy.
