She is a wraith as yet unformed
but for her eye I willed my growth
and excelled in truth I owe
gratitude and this unadorned,
by any attachment I gave her name
these were multiple the person one
who must be applauded for her brave
face, for the ordeal, yet to come.
Should I leave prints in feet of type
this measurement of poetic worth,
I can say, well, she gave me my birth
sorry, detractors, this ain't no hype
for I reached up to a higher state
and I have gone on to reinforce
and name, the name? this, an of course,
Emily but, missing, of late.
