Hannah Swims

Hannah is learning
to swim, her fears
were dispelled one
day.

With life vest on-
she decided to
conquer the waters
scary grip.

Her vicissitude
for heroics,

in the face of her
natural instincts
to shy away from
entering the pool,

strengthened her
resolve to
finally plunge
in.

Now, whenever
we swim-

Hannah
like a little
turtle-

paddles
incessantly.

Keeping herself
busy
from one
end of the pool
to the other-

as we marvel
at her newly
acquired,
pollywog
skill.
