A Wise Word - Poem by K.C. Ford

A wise word expressed
when a hard hand expected,
ensures the child chastised
and repetition corrected.
Knowing which and when is good
reveals the art of parenthood.

    Beautiful! ! why the repetition should be corrected, if the actions are good, so I think you have to add an adjective there...I enjoyed reading this wonderful poem...Thank you for sharing (Report) Reply
