Monorhyme Poem: Childhood’s Effulgence

The mark of childhood – innocence,
(Obscured when through adolescence)
Remains perhaps the quintessence
Of children, right through existence!

The child goes through the influence
Of parents’ rearing, dependence,
Imbibing earthly life’s essence
By childhood bud’s efflorescence!

This is the way of Providence,
The law of God’s omnipotence,
To aid children’s intelligence,
Until begins independence.

And children mould their conscience,
And gather virtuous competence,
And learn wisdom, obedience,
That help them gain self-confidence!

Heaven welcomes their innocence!
Opaque then turns their translucence,
Through parental some negligence,
And differences stealthily commence!

Childhood is one’s reminiscence,
That’s filled by awed magnificence,
A time of joyful existence,
And fading out luminescence!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
