S: Emma Etue - The first year
BC: My heart is like a fountain true That flows and flows with love to you. As chirps the lark unto the tree So chirps my pretty babe to me. There’s not a rose where’er I seek, As comely as my baby’s cheek. There’s not a comb of honey-bee, So full of sweets as babe to me. There’s not a star that shines on high, Is brighter than my baby’s eye. There’s not a boat upon the sea, Can dance as baby does to me. No silk was ever spun so fine As is the hair of baby mine. My baby smells more sweet to me Than smells in spring the elder tree. A little fish swims in the well, So in my heart does baby dwell. A little flower blows on the tree, My baby is the flower to me. The Queen has scepter, crown and ball, You are my scepter, crown and all. For all her robes of royal silk, More fair your skin, as white as milk. Ten thousand parks where deer do run, Ten thousand roses in the sun, Ten thousand pearls beneath the sea, My babe more precious is to me.

43: "A wee bit of heaven drifted down from above, a handful of happiness, a heart full of love."
48: A granddaughter is a gift from above ... one to cherish and to love.
