Birth and the maiden.

Verse in celebration of the 10th birthday of my sole wedding attendant, Miss Isabella Daou

In the town of Sharon Springs
resides the family Daou.
The middle imp - the girl-shaped one
hits double-digits now.
She dances to. She frolics fro -
while always looking chic.
Though vexed by brothers young and old,
one rarely sees her pique.
What wrought this creature, brilliant, fair?
Her parents know - they must!
'Cause meeting her one just might spy
a hint of devil dust.
Isabella, darling sprite,
with glint behind her eyes,
some might suspect - not wrongly so
when no one looks, she flies.
