The Dedication of Isabella

Isabella! What a pretty name
Reminiscent of the Spanish Main
Our little gem cute and petite
Beams a smile each time we meet.

Not yet 4 months, she steals the show
She’s a star – but does she know
Her coming makes our lives complete?
Hence this poem, not a tweet!

Thomas takes her in good part
Too small to play, she has his heart
Today the limelight is her due
Her dedication in Church pew.

In heritage robe of purest white
And Belgian bootees laced up tight
Martin and Angela are proud
To present their daughter to the crowd.

Admired by all yet far too young
To understand the praises sung
By a happy congregation
At this, her April dedication.
