National Poetry Month-The Day She Was Born

On the day she was born,
     I expected a boy,
But as noon followed morn,
     This girl brought me joy!

Everyone guessed a boy,
     But no matter-what love,
I'd never known such joy,
     My gift from above!

All that matters-what love!
     Now I am a mother,
To this gift from above,
     This love like no other!

As noon overtook morn,
     I looked down on her face,
On the day she was born,
     Felt Universe's grace.

This pantoum poem is dedicated to my first, born in the middle of afternoon in February, 1998.
