Can't Wait Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


To Kate Ude my daughterA
As the days your daysB
Draw nearerA
And you show signsC
You're readyD
To embrace the struggleE
We pray and begF
You give us just a little timeG
To get your stuff readyD
For your comingH
I discover tooI
That I've become anxiousJ
To see youI
And in my mind questions ariseK
What do you look likeL
Are you fair or darkM
Are you alone or twoI
If two are you males or femalesN
Or mixed Whom do you resembleE
Your mother or meD
Or anyone in our lineagesO
Despite I can't waitP
To see youI
Can't waitP
To hold you in my my armsQ
I can'tR
Please GodS
I want themT
Beautiful and heathyU

Poet's note: On October 18, my daughter Kate Ude was born. But before then I was under pressure to get things ready for her birth. The mother's tummy was big and people believed she would have twins. In the poem I imagined what baby would be like.
