A First-Birthday Poem for Princess Lanie

June 18, 2014

Lanie is now one, but her laughter and love are rated Top Ten.

Angelic flyer, thanks to her daddy’s hold, Lanie flaps her arms like a ginny wren.

Nap time, night time, or company time–

Lanie gives her royal wave, smiles, and says “bye-bye.”

Is that the princess-mobile with Lanie’s little hands gripping the steering wheel?

Eating her princess cupcake made by her mommy,

Lanie says “mum-mum” and wants more;

and we want much more time to visit entertaining, lovable Lanie.



Birthday wishes to Lanie and all our family members with June birthdays!

Alice and Zoe

    I love your new tribute to Lanie. It looks like you perfectly captured her spirit as well as her new joys and accomplishments.

    • Hi, Fran–Thanks for your comment! We so enjoyed having lunch with you in Marshall, Michigan. How great to visit with you again! Happy Fourth of July! Alice

    • Deon–Thanks for the birthday wish for Lanie! She enjoyed her first birthday party more than any other one-year-old whom I have known. AJM

  3. Alice this is sweet. I can just picture Lanie in her high chair, eating a cupcake, and wearing most of it. Here are my best wishes for a wonderful 1st birthday.

    • Hi, Abbie–Thanks for your comment about Lanie! She and my guide dog got along very well. Now back home in Wisconsin, we certainly miss Lanie’s giggles and laughter. Happy Fourth! Alice

  4. Thank you, Alice, for writing such a special poem for my sweet granddaughter. I’m sure the poem will find its way into her scrapbook of treasures to be enjoyed for many years to come.
    Love, Mary
