Halls of Windsor Palace: Introduction

               (Sonnet to Archie)


Her wrist is not that of a teenage Mum,

Meghan has squared cut short fingernails,

A sensible cut; nothing to get caught

In the fine threads of his royal garments.

He sleeps contentedly and a few hours later

We are advised of the name of the now

Seventh in line to the throne of England;

The first dual citizen royal: but very US of A.


Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.


Harry looks a natural as he holds his son.

He touches the infant face making new parent

Discoveries even as we watch. Bless you, Harry,

That is what we call downy, the hair of the new-born.

Meghan says their baby is of sweet temperament:

A dream, very calm. Sleep little man: we rejoice.
