Baby Sean Swords

You arrived today, in
Spring Snowdrop time,
February 18th 2010.
A little early,
and a little light.
Only as much as
a tub of dairygold,
four pots of low fat yoghurt,
and a silver teaspoon,
like half a recipe.
In good voice too I hear.
Grow and rise
to be as sweet as a cake.
And keep on shouting
“I’m here”, we hear you Seán.
You’re welcome.

Martin Swords
Your Grandfather
