A Child
Poet Unknown


A child is
A butterfly in the wind,
Some can fly higher than others;
but each one flies the best it can.
Why compare one against the other?

Each one is different!
Each one is special!
Each one is beautiful!

A Child Is
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2019


A child is sunshine and happy things
They show us it doesn't matter about things.

A child can brighten a gloomy day
Just by their innocence and what they say.

A child keeps things simple not complex
They couldn't care less if you have a Rolex.

A child's excitement always shows
Their laughter goes right to their toes.

A child will love you, a love you will feel
It is a true love that no one can steal.

God sends us a child as a gift
To remind us of love and give us a lift.

Rosy-Cheek And Curly-Head
Poet: Edgar Wade Abbot


When I go home this welcome waits
Each evening when the day is fled;
The pattering of little feet,
Then clinging arms and kisses sweet,
From Rosy-cheek and Curly -head.

They come with shouts of rioting;
They're laughing so they scarce can speak!
O pair of highwaymen are they;
And I an easy-yielding prey
To Curly-head and Rosy-cheek.

But curly heads will sometimes ache,
And fill our souls with sudden dread;
And roses fade while hearts stand still.
O, may there come no touch of ill
To Rosy-cheek and Curly-head!

God bless all little cheeks of rose!
Where'er they bloom, they sunlight shed.
Bless little heads of rippling hair!
O, take into Thy tender care
Each Rosy-cheek and Curly-head!

Why We Do So
Poet: Strickland Gillilan


We talk to them when they're asleep -
These tiny objects of our love!
We murmur to them while we weep
And call them each our treasure trove.

We talk to them when they're asleep -
Oh, wayward children that they are! -
And hope that always we may keep
Their feet from straying into far

And thorn-girt paths beset with sin -
That they may never, never reap
Such harvesting as ours has been -
We talk to them when they're asleep.

Now do not bust right out and weep,
Or let your cheeks with teardrops glisten;
We talk to them when they're asleep
'Cause that's the only time they'll listen.
