The Little Nyonya

You with your messy little bun
wisps of soft hair tumbling over your forehead

Gently you fold your little hands
and cross your little legs
You strike the perfect balance
between poise and grace

Who'd knew you'd be such a beautiful little Peranakan princess
our delicate little porcelain doll
once you put on the embroidered kebaya
the flowery batik skirt lightly sweeping your ankles
and the tiny beaded sandals decorating your pretty feet

The morning sunshine streamed through the window
turning your face golden and streaking your hair
as you look towards the light and smile
our precious Nyonya girl
