The Poetry Corner featuring Ed Ireland’s Alexa Dawn

Good morning! I’d like to take a moment to welcome back Ed ireland and his poem, Alexa Dawn, from his book, Forgotten Treasure, available on his website (Check links below).

Alexa Dawn by Ed Ireland

Curious little fingers in places they shouldn’t be,
Smiles the defense on everything done wrong
Infectious laughter and mischievous little eyes
I couldn’t live a day without my Alexa Dawn

Arguing to stay awake hours after bedtime calls
Waking up to greet the day with fuzzy slippers on
Asking if I want a drink from a very wet sippy cup
I wouldn’t trade a day that has my Alexa Dawn

She’s Daddy’s Little Princess and carries it in style
Pretty in pink even when singing an off-key song
Happiest when her Babe joins her on a play piano
I couldn’t imagine a life without my Alexa Dawn

Serving make believe tea and make believe cookies
Outrageous and outlandish and never ever withdrawn
As full of life and love and happiness as any child could be
My own life is truly blessed because of Alexa Dawn

About the poem: Of course fathers love their sons but it is the daughters who truly capture them. The smiles, the hugs and the laughter all create a web that every man is willing to allow himself to be wrapped in.

Awsome poem, and thank you for letting me share it, Ed. 🙂

About CP Bialois

Where do I begin? Well first I guess it's only fair to say that CP Bialois isn't my real name. It's a collaboration I made out of the three greatest pets anyone could ever want. My real name is Ed and I'm just an average person that has found a way to do what he loves. For as long back as I can remember I loved to pretend. Whether it was with my Transformers, GI Joe, or He-Man toys I loved to create intricate plots and have them fight it out. As a fan of horror, science fiction, action, and comedy I dare say my taste in movies are well rounded. Some of my favorites were Star Wars, Star Trek, martial arts, and anything with Swarzenegger in them. I'd write my own stories about the characters I saw in the theaters or TV or I'd just daydream about what I'd see myself as the hero of course. You can't have a daydream without beating the bad guys, getting the girl, etc. It's just not right to envision yourself as a flunky or sidekick. As far as books I loved Sherlock Holmes, Treasure Island, Dracula, and the normal assortment. My early love was the Star Trek novels, I'd read them or the Hardy Boys relentlessly. For a time I could tell you the plot of over a hundred books not to mention comics. I have to come clean and say that I learned to read because of comic books. I was bored, make that extremely bored when we started to read in school. Reading "the cat fell down" really didn't interest me. My dad, who continues to astound me with his insight to this day, figured comics would work. With that in mind he went to the newstand in town and bought issues of Donald Duck, Scrooge McDuck, Tales From the Crypt, and Spider-man. He patiently read through them with me until I picked it up. Whether it was him or the comics I learned to read in about two weeks and for a while few were as good as I was. For years after that whenever we'd go out he'd always spring for a couple of comic books for me. While it wasn't exactly the perfect beginning everything I've ever read or have seen has influenced me in some way and now is the time I'd like to share some of the ideas I've had over the years with all of you. I hope you enjoy my stories, they're always fun to write and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon.
