Reid is my daugher Alysha’s boyfriend.  He comes bearing gifts.  An ornament for the tree from Denmark where he was studying abroad.  And this poem that he wrote last night on his way to see The Elf musical.

I come to Seattle, walkin’ down Pike

I hear the sound of silence, that’s the Velvet Hammer strike

She’s a charged pack of power in an unikely form

A tiny little mama whose heart has only warm

Don’t let that fool you if you’re an opponent of hers

Her soft little voice is safe as Mountain Lion purrs

And…that’s not all please don’t get me wrong

She raised her girls like herself

so that’s four women strong
