The Lovable Child



The Lovable Child

Frisky as a lambkin,
   Busy as a bee
That's the kind of little girl
   People like to see.

Modest as a violet,
   As a rosebud sweet
That's the kind of little girl
   People like to meet.

Bright as is a diamond,
   Pure as any pearl
Everyone rejoices in
   Such a little girl.

Happy as a robin,
   Gentle as a dove
That's the kind of little girl
   Everyone will love.

Fly away and seek her,
   Little song of mine,
For I choose that very girl
   As my Valentine.

~Emilie Poulsson
