A Child Brings Joy

All the time in the world
Can never be as precious
As the years your child grows
It is a luxury of the ambitious

Although minutes are impounded
With things that must be done
Chores and working for a dollar
Should not eliminate the fun

Children are a marvel to observe
Each moment becomes more satisfying
Even when the days are challenging
Rewards of success are gratifying

When the hours of budding have dissolved
An adult emerges and comprehends
With joy and laughter, remembering when…
The moments continue to give dividends

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
