Lily-Pearl (poem)

Oh, my daughter
In our tradition
(In that of the poets;
The legacy of lovers
Of words and of justice)
I could write to you
Of who you could be
Of who
You could grow to become.

But, my daughter
My lily-pearl
Radiant and lustrous:
You are; you are; you are;
Myriad splendour
Bright light
Formidable benevolence.

My lily-pearl
Rounded and fair
Mighty
Crafted in the dark tumbling
Beneath an ocean of tumult
You are; you are; you are;
And in your reflection,
Here I am.
