Welcome to the world, Clara

We wish to the new child:
A heart that can be beguiled
by a flower
that the wind lifts
as it passes
over the grasses
after a summer shower.

A heart that can recognize
without the aid of the eyes
the gifts that life holds for the wise.

If the storms break for her
may the trees shake for her
their blossoms down.

In the night that she is troubled
may a friend wake for her
so that her time be doubled.

And at the end of all loving and love
may the Man above
give her a crown.

Daniel Kelleher
