A song for a baby,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Blueberry Girl (Hardcover)
Ladies of Anapest, Ladies of Iamb
Lightly your feet skip along
Here is a lilt for a Blueberry Girl,
A wish written into a song.
Oh, we all wish our babes to be
Both good and kind, to have
Courage and honor and joy.
We wish all these things for
Our Blueberry Girls,
And we wish just as much for each Boy.
I've purchased this book
For my Blueberry Girls,
Now grown into Ladies of note.
Well set on their paths,
They fill both my dreams and my hopes.
Oh Ladies of Doggerel, Ladies of Rhyme,
Of Metaphor, Image and Trope,
Here is a song for a Blueberry Girl,
But I'm Nearing the End Of My Rope.
Ladies, you whisper, you sing, and you chant,
You haunt me awake or a-dream.
Ladies, dear ladies you're driving me mad:
Get out of my head or I'll SCREAM!

I thought you'd like to know that Neil Gaiman has stated on his blog (in a post otherwise about his cat, who is dying, just to warn you) that he particularly likes your review. And so do I!

thank you for letting me know this -- I am honored. Poor Zoe, poor Neil, poor Olga. Love makes us bigger, better people, and it is hard to lose.

I love your poem... and I'm very sad to hear about Neil's cat... I know what it is like to lose a beloved companion.
