The prompts from Sunday Scribblings (big) and The March Challenge (birth) were perfectly apropos for what I wanted to say:
To my Son and Daughter, on their Eleventh Birthday
How on earth, from the time of your birth,
to this day, eleven years later
did you get so grown and so full blown
while my love grows ever greater.
Here's to more happy birthdays and more reasons to celebrate! ♥
