Sunday Poetry: “She roars, and we are conquered.”

Welcome to Sunday Poetry. If this is your first visit you can read about the purpose and inspiration of my Sunday poetry blogs here.

To honor our grand-daughter’s 6th birthday today I’ve chosen a delightful poem about the birth of a little girl.  “Birth Day” by Elise Paschen, celebrates the beginning of a new life and new possibilities.  Do you remember a special birth that gave you this feeling of exhilaration?

Remember, we read poetry together here for the pure pleasure of the experience. There are no quizzes, no right ways to read or contemplate the poem we share. Absolutely no dissecting allowed. Just come along for the “read.” What line, word or thought will you carry with you this week? If you’d like to tell us where the poem took you? We’ll listen.

    Oh, I love this poem! The whole thing!

    This past week, one of my dear friends gave birth to a darling little boy, 11 months to the day after she gave birth to a sweet little stillborn babe; a boy.. This poem echoes what my heart has been feeling the past few days.
