Geraldine will be 19 today!
Each year she grows more lovely and mature.
Rarely does she think of her allure,
Although she blushes when men look her way.
Love, for her, must be much more than passion,
Doing, as she does, so much for others.
In her there is the sense that men are brothers,
Needing joy, of course, but more, compassion;
Else they might be nothing more than lovers.
