Children Playing


The enthusiastic boy swiftly sings for a toy,
Where is the enthusiastic girl?
The girl fetches the ball, like a playful puppy,
Want to play catch with me?


Games grow!
Tag you're it!
Boy falls!


The boy screams like a small puppy,
Mommy, I got a boo boo on my knee,
The lovable puppy quietly licks the boys face.


The insightful boy calmly laughs.
Says, " Tag your it! "


Why does the girl endure?


Let's have some ice cream.


Happiness is children eating chocolate ice cream
while playing all day.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
