Little Rose ~ Romance #1

My Mama and my Papa are in Italy this week,

we're staying in a villa that is old, perhaps antique.

My sister is out shopping with Sophia for the day;

Ma-ma is reading in the sun and watching while I play.

Pa-pa bought me a sundress just 'cause I'm his 'little rose';

I love to twirl about in it while on my tippy-toes!

Ma-ma just smiles and claps her hands, I giggle with delight;

my shadow dances 'round the floor amid the noon sunlight.
