A House Of Joy! - Poem by veeraiyah subbulakshmi

A house full of just played toys, ,
Just fed bowls, just torn papers,
Newly added drawing to the walls,
What a pleasure to the eyes and souls,
The kids are there in that house,
Growing as inquisitive as they have to be,
Let them play in their own house,
Don't control them in the name of rules,
Young mothers, don't toil too hard to please,
All the notorious oldies of the world,
Teach your children the morals and to be bold,
Enjoy your life with your children and husband,
Unkempt house is not an eyesore,
When the kids are growing to be old,
Unkempt heatt is a real curse,
When the old and young comfortable with.

    House is the only place, where we can take little liberties! Children shouldn't be tortured in our eagerness to keep the house spic and span! But they should be gently taught the lessons of orderliness! Good write! ! (Report) Reply
