I wish I could shout it from the rooftops that this poem is NOT by Ernest Hemingway! It's a poem that I wrote a little over a year ago and yet it still gets circulated under the wrong name. I'm humbled that people think this could belong to Hemingway, but a little irritated at the same time that I can do nothing about the miscredit.
I've been wanting to share this poem with you for ages but I couldn't find the source. I hunted high and low to try and find the elusive e.h but had no luck and then yesterday I miraculously came across her place and now I'm so happy to share Erin's beautiful words which should be dedicated to all our daughters and so it is. Erin Hanson I salute you fine lady. ::source::
