Emily Joan Taylor

Emily Joan TaylorAfter a spectacular nine month production, Emily Joan Taylor arrived in 70mm – Widescreen ‘stylie’ on the world stage on 19th May 2007 at 8.10am, weighing approximately 8lbs 10oz. In the West London region, our joy is boundless, with buds blooming in our hearts; we are dancing around the trees, in Bollywood delirium…. We can’t wait to see her – soon she will be eating Samosas, Chutnies and Kebab rolls and loads of kulfi’s!!!

A great name that the proud parents Lyndsey and Matt have chosen;  Emily….

It brings to mind Emily Dickinson – the profound American poet who changed the nature of poetic structure in modern American literature…. A poem for Emily to Emily:

A BIRD came down the walk: 
He did not know I saw; 
He bit an angle-worm in halves 
And ate the fellow, raw. 
  
And then he drank a dew         
From a convenient grass, 
And then hopped sidewise to the wall 
To let a beetle pass. 
  
He glanced with rapid eyes 
That hurried all abroad,—        
They looked like frightened beads, I thought 
He stirred his velvet head 
  
Like one in danger; cautious, 
I offered him a crumb, 
And he unrolled his feathers       
And rowed him softer home 
  
Than oars divide the ocean, 
Too silver for a seam, 
Or butterflies, off banks of noon, 
Leap, plashless, as they swim.

Other great Emily’s:

Emily Bronte writer of the amazing Wuthering Heights – whose sister Charlotte wrote about Emily: “a secret power and fire that might have informed the brain and kindled the veins of a hero

Painter – Julia Emily Gordon….

Painter – Emily Carr

We’ll bring you more Emily in due course

Congratulations, Lyndsey and Matt and welcome to the world Emily Joan Taylor. May you have a long, fruitful and happy innings!!

From the West London Posse
