Cyclothymic Cister

Before the Internet, I used to lie in bed at night composing thoughts as if I were talking to a wise entity. (An actual face never came to mind). I would re-word and re-phrase the thoughts till they were crystal clear. Now I can blog. And hopefully, there are a lot of wise people with real faces out there who might just comment back.

Why God Made Little Girls

My father had four girls. To hear him tell it, he wouldn't have had it any other way. In honor of my father on Father's Day, here is a poem he was fond of:

Why God Made Little Girls

God made the world with its towering trees,
majestic mountains and restless seas.

Then paused and said,
"It needs one more thing,someone to laugh and dance and sing.

To walk in the woods and gather flowers,
to commune with nature in quiet hours."

So God made little girls,with laughing eyes and bouncing curls.
With joyful hearts and infectious smiles,

enchanting ways and feminine wiles.

And when He completed the task He'd begun,
he was pleased and proud of the job He'd done.

For the world, when seen through a little girl's eyes,
greatly resembles Paradise.

Happy Father's Day from us Girls!
