October 23: Fangirl’s Progress

My seven year old self would be amazed
To know adult me met C-3PO,
Sat at at his feet appearing pleased but dazed,
And then sang backup for him in a show.

Obsessive teen-me, Disney superfan,
Would envy adult me as she disports
While Alan Menken gives notes on a plan
To add new choral songs to Stephen Schwartz.

To see my youthful yearnings grow and bloom,
Some decades later, makes me rather thrilled-
It makes me certain I should not presume
To guess which current dreams may be fulfilled.

Tonight, I need no hindsight to attest
That Libbys past and present are impressed.
