Day 294, the newborn

Welcome to the world Drew Steven Clutter!!!!

He flails his little paws
Jerky little arms move

Poke, prod and this newborn

He feels warm breaths and soft flesh
This bright, noisy world
Just might be home

And one day soon he will smile
He is a tiny lord
Ruler over hearts
Prince of their
