Iyesha (a tonal drawing written in poetic form)

Iyesha
(for my daughter)

pretty little pretty girl
with the sun you greet the world
dark and lovely roasted pearl
pretty little pretty girl
ponytails and little curls
tiny dress with plenty furls
pretty little pretty girl
be like mama make your twirl
dress your dolly cat you hurl
pretty little pretty girl
in the school with friends you whirl
making laughter in a swirl
pretty little pretty girl
here at bedtime do you surl
scared you gonna leave this world
pretty little pretty girl
pretty little pretty girl
pretty little pretty girl
pretty little pretty girl
pretty little pretty girl
