A Poem for Kyrie

Anna wrote a piece of poetry the other night for Kyrie Sophia.  She came out on the deck and declared to the boys and I who were working in the fort – “time for a poetry moment.” I share it with you. 

 

Kyrie Sophia

You are as beautiful as a sunset

Your fine, wispy hair soft and orange like the clouds

Your eyes, brilliant blue like the sky reflecting the last glimpse of the sun

Your skin, flushed pink and white like the mixture of colors above the horizon

Your smile, bright and glowing like the rays of the setting sun
