Like Anything

This has always been one of Tricia's favorite poems...

My name is Rose.
My eyes are blue.
My name is Rose,
and who are you?
My name is Rose,
and when I sing,
I am Rose
like anything.
- Gertrude Stein -

Precious poem for a sweet Gwyneth Rose.

Anothermadhousewife said...

So cute. The rose is great for perspective. She's so big (relatively) and healthy now, that I forget how tiny she still is. ERika :)

LisserB said...

You should frame that serious with the poem scripted on the frame under each picture. Beautiful.

The third "My name is Rose" picture is all you!

LisserB said...

that should say "series" not serious...

Fabulous! And how ironic is this--she's getting hair!! Look at her show off... ;-)
