For Sophia's First Birthday
Our earth has spun around the sun once since
An 8-line Ramage poem written for my grandniece
your birth and today is your first birthday.
Oh Sophia, your namesake goddess of wisdom
bless you as you grow steadfast in knowledge
and glow in beauty like snow in the meadows.
That finger of Plato points to the One
from which the ten thousands things flow
wishing rainbows of joy for your birthday.
Peter Y. Chou
Sophia Lubin's 1st birthday on June 3, 2008.
