Charlotte's angel kisses

Uncategorized Dec 12, 2018

What are those dots upon your face, 
  most darlingest of misses?
They could be chickenpox, I guess;
  more likely, angel kisses.

As just a girl myself I thought
   of freckles as a scourge,
but now I’m old and love those spots
  and thrill as yours emerge.

You see, a wise old doctor told
  me when I was a child
that freckles made my face appear
  as if I always smiled.

And so as each wee polka dot
  appears upon your face,
I thank the Lord and angels for 
  their speckly, freckly grace.

Happy Birthday, Charlotte Elizabeth McFadzean, four years old on Saturday!
