For Olivia, on Your 15th Birthday

Posted on: 5/31/2019

A limerick for your birthday:

15 years, you post-millennial,
Is already one 10th your sesquicentennial.
So fast, you’re growing and changing,
Metamorph-teen-mutating,
Into someone who’s quite consequential!

(And I cannot wait to see what’s next.)
