nor was it a famous victory on the
sporting fields, or at best anything
to do with wilful contest
nor was it driven by media think-
tanks or ubiquitous polls suggesting
what a hesitant future may bring
it was instead a thin cry rising to a
full-blooded howl as Freja Jean
made her entrance into the World
and we are reduced to an adoring
silence at how one so small can
easily command all she sees...
