Me: Your post yesterday inspired this from me today. : ) You made me think about my own daughter and of just how proud I am of her too. I love her to death! Yes, they are all grown up now ... lovely but sad too. I know. And, by the way, I don't advise attempting this form unless you are very, VERY keen!

Blessed with great beauty and loving heart – wow!
Wonder Woman’s so smart
To win you’ll need a head start
She’s truly state of the art
The very best of her kind – Amazon
Amazing, agile mind
Her confidence unconfined
Superior to men-kind
Her force from earth spirit – superhuman
She can fly and she can flit
Super speed - lickety split!
Her golden bracelets bulletproof - weapons
Watch her Lasso of Truth
Wisdom, beauty and strength – strewth!
And in spandex … she’s no goof!
