For Amy

This Little ditty is written on my Daughters Birthday ( who is loved lots ) she is to be married next year to a lovely chap So this dedicated to her.

For Amy 

Amy Shepherd

My Pre-Raphaelite child,
With her tonal golden hair, 
A face illuminated by her smile,
Her demeanour totally unaware. 

My Pre- Raphaelite Teen,
With her tonal golden hair, 
Her body entombed in jeans,
A style she wore with flair!

My Pre- Raphaelite woman,
With your tonal golden hair, 
Your love of life your omen,
A gift if ever to share !

My Pre- Raphaelite offspring,
With your tonal golden hair, 
A love date set for your wedding
To a groom who loves to care !

What more could we wish for 
My Pre-Raphaelite Child !
