Traits


When I see your mother,
I see her in you.
You share the same eyes,
you laugh the same too.

When you speak your mind
I hear an echo of your dad,
and when you get annoyed,
it's him getting mad.

I feel sorry for our daughter,
she looks a lot like me,
but she already swears like you,
not bad for the age of three.

My son, now he's a strange one,
I don't know who he looks like,
but he does talk with a stutter,
just like the postman Mr Pike.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
