Cousin DeAnna

So, cousin DeAnna —
Will you seek adventure?
Leaving home and wheat field,
Your girlhood indenture?

Long the voices told you
Just give up and settle –
And to be a blossom
While you’ve still the petal

But a fire’s burning
People are not viewing;
They think you are timid
An admixture’s brewing

Long the voices told you
Do not dream so spacious:
Live with limitations
Smile and be gracious

But today in stillness
You’ve made your decision
Surgical and silent
Swift and with precision

You will, sweet DeAnna,
Make mistakes of passion —
And you’ll find a calling
After your own fashion

Now, Cousin DeAnna –
More than just a cherub –
You will be amazing.
Your Cuz
And fan club
