Tomorrow by Eleanor Rydstrom (Highly Commended)

Down by a stream and through a meadow, a mother sat cradling her new arrival.
And she sang.
“May she be reckless and may she be kind,
may she enjoy drinking nettle wine.
May she be brave and may she be humble,
may she be tough and love to tumble.
May she have logic and may she have wisdom,
may she live in a world with freedom.
One day I will die,and my ashes will fly,
and dance on the breeze over mountians and trees.
And still on the earth, feet on the ground
a girl of Tomorrow, hope is abound.
Soon she will find the man of her choice,
kind, polite, and lets her have a voice.
Love, she will find and soon after that,
a red, plump baby in a soft woolen hat.
And then she will die, her ashes will fly,
And dance on the breeze, over mountains and trees.
But still on the earth, her feet on the ground,
A girl of Tomorrow, hope still abound.”
