235/365 To Dona Lee – My First Grandchild

My grandfather wrote this on the event of my birth.

Broadcast it to the Universe
So to all it may be heard,
That Dona Lee Patrick arrived
On August twenty-third.
From fooling around
Between Patsy and Elvin.
They received a wee bundle,
Straight from Heaven.
Her Dad asked for a boy,
But it was not
He could readily tell ’cause
It had a — pink bootie
Her eyes are brown and
So is her hair.
When she arrived there was
An inch of it there.
She is very tiny
But so is her mother.
Now try again
So she can have a brother.
