Probably because of that I love that Little Lady loves writing poetry and is always writing for me. The poem that she wrote today really surprised me. I read the first few lines with a smirk and then came to the last line and had the smirk wiped off.
I asked her what made her think of the last line and she said it was a conversation we had some weeks ago about cancer.It made me think that LL is growing up faster than I think:
Think of the Princess of China, Mulan
Walking around in her golden garments and splendid silk
Think of Sleeping Beauty,
Asleep for a hundred years in her beauty
Think about Rapunzel with magical hair,
With healing powers that every person longs to find.
Think about Cinderella, from ripped rags,
To silk robes and dresses
But think of the beautiful lady with cancer.
Longing for a cure, staying strong for her family,
Struggling on, she stays brave.
