First Secret

This will be
My first secret.
One to keep low,
One to cook
And store
In the larder
Of my mind.
One to savour
From time to time,
Refreshing my
Newly-found resolve,
To keep this secret,
Till it's safe
To let it fly.

And now,
The time has come,
For the secret
To be told.

It's a baby.
Under way,
On her way,
This May.

Congratulations! Good babies come from May, that's when I was born :)

Do you have a name yet?

Imagine, a new baby in "the larder of your mind"

Congratulations! It would be impossible not to share the joy of a new life.

This is very sweet. Some secrets are more difficult to keep than others : )
