Ode to a Five Year Old


our delightful little bailey with the large personality
expressive artist, animated storyteller
fearless athlete extraordinaire
highly independent, frustrated by adult interference 
the air is charged, the house bounces to life at her arrival
our spaniel is excited for such an enthusiastic play pal
our feline hides, certain her peaceful existence has ended
this is our little bailey who adds such excitement to our lives
