She’s lovely he said, a precious babe
she’s already smiling look at that face
born on Friday so she’ll be loving and giving
With those brown eyes that twinkle and beam
and smooth skin like rich milk cream
all those strawberry curls, oh my, what a dream!
Let’s call her Linda, in Spanish it means
beautiful, soft, and tender
with hopes she’ll live up to her name
and with grace, always remembered

  1. like naming the princess born into their lives, tender and soft she did become and still is – your name describes your perfectly, your parents were certainly blessed on the day you were born

  2. I really enjoyed your approach to the prompt, with parents’ perspective. OH my goodness….there is nothing sweeter than strawberry curls. The image was a perfect enhancement to your poem.

  3. Hey fellow Friday baby! I think we naturally have that TGIF spirit in us;) And I like your name, as it is the same name as my dear mother in-law. And the Spanish pronunciation, “Lee-nda” is my favorite.
