Parker’s Content

I was impressed though not surprised –

She is so calm and content


Some would doubt my impression,

after all, she is just a few hours old.

They would contend that newborns

just eat, sleep and poop.


I see it differently –

Well-swaddled she responds

to mom and dad with gentle coos

and warmly cuddles


With pleased eyes

pursed lips and nestling arms,

she accepts their care

and loves to share.


In grandpops arms now,

she snuggles deep –

enjoying my embrace

and smiling gracefully.


Sated, she wants to eat.

I comply and she makes happy.

Our eyes locked

and she rests assured.


I am impressed though not surprised  –

preparation works

and love ensues –

She is so calm and content.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
