for Sophia

welcome little pretty one

to our ever changing world

as the future’s hopes and dreams

are within your eyes unfurled


precious angel, Heaven sent

secrets on your lips yet sealed

sweet, sublime, these mysteries

through your life will be revealed


what of all His untold gifts

has the Lord in you conceived?

in what manner, in what form

is this destiny received?


will it be some magic cure,

technological advance,

words of wisdom, songs of love,

or to teach us all to dance?


much remains unknown today

save these inspirations true

that which you now offer us

and that which first created you


Congratulations to Tony and Carmen Duarte on the birth of their beautiful little girl, Sophia, in whose honor this verse was written…  jsr
