Baby Voice


Cute baby of five year old
Often heard his uncle say
Dam fool
Baby surprised everyone
The moment he saw
Uncle
Uttered in baby voice dam full.

Once in a rickshaw
A man on side coughed once
Immediately
Baby coughed thrice.

Baby quiet mischievous
He loved the jam a lot
Climbed the steps all the way
And had jam to his heartfelt
But all his dress too shared his jam.

His cute eyes search for
Anyone coming from office
Immediately he takes ball
And throws at him and tell
Catch me if you can.

Baby watching serial on women
With grandma,
Is telling in a low voice
Just see how he killed her,
If I was there I would have punched him.

Baby went for a party
Each of them gave something to eat
Not knowing his little stomach
He ate unknowingly.
Home at mid night
Baby walking with both hands on stomach
My stomach so filled
Oh my dear grandma
Give me some antacid.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
