Melchisedeck Roche Poems
A twinkle in their eyes A tear from their cries So beautiful they are On their blanket as they lie
I wake up each morning and wonder Who shall I be today? As I view my many faces and ponder What color shall I display?

A twinkle in their eyes
A tear from their cries
So beautiful they are
On their blanket as they lie
A soft gentle sigh
Little feet kicking high
A fuzzy greeting to
Anyone passing by
A finger held tight
An unusual Hi!
