Pockets (Children) - Poem by C.J. Heck

I think of all the things I have,
I like my pockets best.
Pockets hold just everything
and they give your hands a rest.

I never know just what I'll find,
what special things I'll see
to put inside my pockets ~~
these are treasures, just for me.

When Mommy's doing laundry though,
she says sometimes it's scary
finding rocks and frogs and beetles
and my spiders that are hairy.

    I could never get tired of complimenting your childrens poetry because they always contain a fresh childlike innocence.
