Why, oh why, won't (note!) my inner pedant be silenced?

You could write verse two in which the child grows up and learns to use apostrophes!! wink

Tearing up myself!

Oh Maw!
Brought to mind this fading follow-up, written by DD3:
A little girl with her chubby round face
Around her neck, a collar of lace,
Swinging so carefree
With the sun in her eyes,
Clutching the handle,
Up and up she flies.

How life has changed
Since that day in summer,
I have met new people,
And grown up with others.

My mind has matured,
No longer do I wear,
The dresses in my cupboard,
Or that blue ribbon in my hair.

I still have that swing,
Where my childhood still reigns,
But I'm no longer a little girl.
I am 10 years of age!
