Little Child


Little faced one with black poppy eyes,
Glared by the red candies I hold.
You like the ones that are iced, I know.
The frills of your frock are dainty,
Like the round ringlet locks.
You look gleeful my little child
You smell of fragrant powder dust
I can’t wait to cuddle you on my chest
As you seek to feel it flutter
My lashes touch your cheeks
You blush as you see me cuddle you
My most awaited moment when day breaks
Is to see the sun shine in your tiny eyes

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Every time I see a child, I look at the eyes. Its beautiful and reflects how innocent was life when we all started our own. We loved candies and knew nothing about the dark corners we see as we grow into becoming adults.But, the same innocence can be awakened in the presence of a child. You begin to see the joy of your own self in the child's eyes. Indeed the moments of hugging cuddling and playing gives you the boost of life and rekindles the child in you. I adore the child in this poem who has made time transform into a beautiful moment.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
