Son Poems | Little Boys Are Treasures

Little Boys are Treasures
(Son Poems)

Little boys are treasures
who are worth their weight in gold ..
And charm everyone around them
from the time they’re hours old.

They’re Mommy’s little darling
they’re a special pal to Dad ..
And they bring the very happiest days
a family’s ever had!

Parental Pride
(Son Poems)

My day-old son
is plenty scrawny ..
his mouth is wide
with screams, or yawny.

His ears seem larger
than he’s needing ..
His nose is flat
his chin’s receding.

His skin is very,
very red ..
He has no hair
upon his head.

And yet I’m proud
as proud can be ..
To hear you say
he looks like me.

Son Poems | I Took His Hand and Followed

I Took His Hand and Followed
(Son Poems)

My dishes went unwashed today
I didn’t make the bed ..
I took his hand and followed
Where his eager footsteps led.

Oh yes, we went adventuring
My little son and I ..
Exploring all the great outdoors
Beneath the summer sky.

We waded in a crystal stream
We wandered through a wood ..
My kitchen wasn’t swept today
But life was gay and good.

We found a cool, sun-dappled glade
And now my small son knows ..
How Mother Bunny hides her nest
Where jack-in-the-pulpit grows.

We watched a robin feed her young
We climbed a sunlit hill ..
Saw cloud-sheep scamper through the sky
We plucked a daffodil.

That my house was neglected
That I didn’t brush the stairs ..
In twenty years, no one on earth
Will know, or even care.

But that I’ve helped my little boy
To noble manhood grow ..
In twenty years, the whole wide world
May look and see and know.
