God made the world with towering trees,
Majestic mountains and restless seas.
Then paused and said , “It needs one more thing…
Someone to laugh and dance and sing.
To walk in the wood and gather flowers…
To commune with nature in quiet hours.”
So God made little girls
With laughing eyes and bouncing curls,
With joyful hearts and infectious smiles,
Enchanting ways and feminine wiles.
And when He’d completed the task He’d begun.
He was pleased and proud of the job He’d done.
For the world, when seen through little girl’s eyes
Greatly resembled Paradise.
This poem was given to my mum when our last born was born, I was 7 when she was born, and we memorized this poem. Its amazing how a childs brain is like a sponge, it absorbs anything and everything. It amazes me that till today, me and my sisters all remember this poem.
I don’t know if we really quite understood the meaning of the poem, but it definatley made us realize we were special, and we had a purpose. Isnt it just a beautiful mantra to little girls lives.
