Maggie Jayne is the littlest Schwandt
in the Lakeview Schwandt pond.
Maggie Jayne, girl, the boys won’t dare
to be pummeled by thirty fists.
Loved by an army,
she’s the last twinkle in her daddy’s eye.
Will she be free-wheelin’ on an ATV
or baking apple pies in an apron?
Wearing camo or curls?
Curtsying or climbing trees?
On November 4, 2020, Maggie Jayne Schwandt was born. She is the first baby girl to be born to Mr. & Mrs. Schwandt after the couple had 14 other children, all boys. The family lives in Lakeview, MI, a suburb of Grand Rapids which isn’t far from here. The family are outdoorsmen and recently started a local cable TV show about it.

Peter Frankis is today’s host of dVerse‘ Poetics. Peter says:
So tonight poets, let’s bear witness in our local neighbourhood. Look at your local paper (if you still have such a thing), find a publicly reported event, a tree planting or a tree felling, a dam opening or a landslide. Perhaps something you witnessed personally – whatever inspires.
