Constellation of the stars with
Vega prominent, a worthy name
for one who carries music in her
veins. A tune to play upon your
naming day, an ancient Grecian
compliment that swoons an ancient
lay. Lyra of the glittered skies you
shine a light before our eyes.

Your impish smile delights where
parent grace is thinned by nights
of sleeplessness – yet eyes ignite
a lightening of spirits raised. And
better days are praise for life in
arms enamoured in your name.
