“Ball of Delight”

I have been trying to find
an image or picture to which
I can compare my little
girl to — and so far
I have succeeded in thinking
of only one — she is like
a ball of delight, with her
round face and fine eyes,
with her plump cheeks and
invisible neck, with her
fat arms and even fatter legs,
and with her hands clasped
together in that fashion
as if she already knows
how to behave like a lady:
Ball of delight. Sphere of
felicity. Orb of pure joy.
That is simply what she is.
