poem: Big Barry

Big Barry


Firstborn to Eve and Craig and first grandchild

For moi – the pregnancy was quite OK

But labour long and hard as first attempts

Are wont to be.  Eve coped so well but babe

Was near ten pound; she nearly made it, he

Was just too big, so Caesar had to be.

The Womens’ shined, and kept it safe;  though both

Exhausted, Eve and Craig so happy.  Home

To Burnley, Craig had toiled for long to get

It ready; babe so cute and seems relaxed

Like both his parents, likes to arch his back.

The cats are looking on in awe at this

Big boy, big Barry Shell, just one month old

And rolling over – off and running! Eve

Just looks a natural.  So here’s to all!
