Isabella - at Six Months Old

That personality begins to form
They say starts right back when you're born
It's now six months that my sweet niece,
The star of course of this short piece,

Arrived to family acclaim;
Isabella – such a pretty name.
Often overshadowed by big brother
And dressed so cutely by her mother

What Isabella thinks and feels
At last this photograph reveals!
A telling smile – what has she spied?
Her tiny mind in override.

Humour's such a personal thing
Something makes her wee heart sing
Could it be Mum who points the lens?
There's wisdom in the look she sends ...
