Benediction for the girl child 

I have thought of this, my little love

Rifled through the pockets of my diminished 

Powers of speech and human governance,

To find you all good things:

Enhanced night vision

Kick-ass ninja skills

The irrefutable assurance of your loveliness

Not enough.

So let us add:

Dragons rise to your command

Eagles lift you to the place where air grows thin

and may you

always see

The clear road home.

Too much, you protest

So down to this, 

voice of love

Talitha, cumi.
