After The First Crying Was Heard


After the first crying was heard,
After the nipples were sucked,
After ginger and vinegar I ate;

After the first tooth came out,
After the candy-box was opened,
After marks were left on my shoulder;

After the first step the toddler walked,
After hide-and-seek was played,
After I woke crying from the nightmare;

After “mama” was called to everyone,
After “tita” was chased,
After I hugged you tightly refusing to leave.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
