Annelise



So poetic a life can be when the very name dances upon your heart!

Strawberry cheeks and raison-ette eyes.

Raggedy – Ann and Olly hold court under sunny skies.

“Sugar cubes and a little tea?
One for you, one for me and always one for mommy”.

Seedlings and rain, muddy toes and puddles bring giggles, tears, and flowers.

She gives soft whispers of love before her slumber and sweet baby kisses as she wakes.

Annelise will know of no ill, as
those who have loved her, sleep with her moon, and

those who will hold her, rise with her dawn.
