A POEM FOR LOUISA
Gaynor Llewellyn-Jenkins

There is a silence that surrounds you whilst you read
I am mesmerised
By your voice
Astounded
By your pronunciation

Your intonation
Is exceptional
Mesmerising
From one so young
So enchanting
So innocent

Naïve
To the struggles that
You in time will face

If only I could frame you
Keep you
Innocent

Selfish I know
But I want to see you grow
Bloom
Flourish

So grow
Show
The world
Show me

What you have learnt
As you read
In innocence
Inspiring
Me
