This is a birthday poem I wrote for my youngest sister for her 23rd birthday. When our mother was pregnant with her she asked me, "What would you like to name her?" And I said, "Red Riding Hood". My request was denied but her name ended up being just as good or better. This piece is being published in The Ronin Express. I will post dates soon. I hope you enjoy it.

As I survey my precious angel
Words cannot describe
The depth of love I have for you
The breadth of endless pride

Since the day you were created
From the time I knew your name
Admiration has not ceased to grow
In beauty as your fame

A glory to our family
To lose her would be pity
In my eyes you are treasure
Discovered in Bay City

To what do I owe the pleasure?
To whom shall I oblige?
The blessing of my cherished one
The praise of Kings and Scribes

Red riding hood was not enough
In error I had spoken
Your name was chosen hastily
But mom held just the token

From innocence to wisdom
Now you walk the walk
I've loved you, ever was the day
Before you learned to talk

Though time has brought a woman forth
For everyone to see 

Little Red Riding Hood lives in my heart, 

Eternally

 
I love you Shellie Marie
