Children - Poem by William McGehee

Children,
Overturn as many rocks
As in your backyard lie.

Try to count each shining star
That ever meets your eye.

Climb each branch on every tree
When summer calls you name.

Rest and watch the sun go down
In bright and vibrant flame.

Then rise to meet a brand new day
Beneath a brand new sky

Learn well, explore the world my sons
Or life may pass you by.
