In my opinion, a lovely poem, written in dedication to a beloved great granddaughter and a more loving tribute could not be written or narrated. The rhyme is smooth and flows in even rhyming rhythm, with no image necessary. The verse creates perfect imagery. I am certain she loves your words almost as much as she loves you and is more than grateful for your devotion and pride...
This is a great poem! It certainly paint the picture of a beautiful, sweet and talented young lady that should not spread herself think but perfect one or two of her talents. Beautiful poem, easy to read. Well done
Ah. I've said it before, but truly I begin to smile when I see you have a post up--I know I am in for a treat as you write so personally and with such unbridled honesty and emotion. I am SO pleased Gabrielle, in 2019 is living up to your wise predictions in 2011! (How could she NOT have an artistic gift, with YOU in her life!?--Karenina
Gabrielle should be very proud to have you as her grandfather who not only can predict her destiny but is doting on her with the will to live to see her accomplish what he wants for her. Don't we all want the best for our children and grandchildren? Very nicely crafted and long life to the loving granddad!
It's a lovely poem! The rhyming is excellent and flow is fine as well. Glad to know your predictions are coming true. Parents and grandparents can sense the talents of children quite well. I enjoyed reading this.
"Gabrielle", is an extremely well-written and delightfully descriptive piece. This talented poet's work was a pleasure to both read and review. To me, this is a six, but unfortunately I'm not given enough of them. I look forward to seeing your next post.
