Treasure Island

Loyd C. Taylor

Part of Me

Dedicated to all my children and grandchildren.

You are a part of me, child;
It’s undeniably true.
I hear it in certain words
I see it in things you do!

I’m in your mannerisms,
Little gestures and odd moods;
I’m in your taste of clothing,
Even in your choice of foods.

In many of your features
From your crown to baby toes,
It’s obvious we’re related
And a fact everyone knows.

I’m so happy that you are;
I’m as proud as I can be.
And I know you’re just as proud
That you are a part of me.

Inspired by my grandson Dawson.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

One day after breakfast with my grandson Dawson and while sitting at the kitchen table clowning around, Dawson was putting on my eyeglasses trying to look like me. I snapped a photo of both of us using my auto photo taker and then later penned these words. I hope you enjoy, Loyd

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.
