The great child's poet! What a wonderful time it must have been when the neighborhood children would sit on his porch drinking lemonade and listening to his stories.... A great man and benefactor to the Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis, one of the leading hospitals for children in the nation.... It is said that the neighborhood children brought up the fund for his memorial after his passing by donating coins. It is still tradition to leave coins at his memorial in Crown Hill cemetery in Indianapolis, which are used to aid the children's hospital.
There was a song that went something like this: Now there's bubble gum/ All over your hair/ Your sling shot is broken/ But you mustn't care /... For cowboys never cry! I'm trying to recall the whole song. This poem reminds me of this song.
Life is a great lesson, the suffering starts from childhood till end of life. First the dolls and are broken by peer group and later heart is broken by persons who we love.The life is tragic as well as comic.never cry for the loss. there is hidden voice appealing us to face life boldly. Nice theme is presented with suitable objects.
