Simple Verse- Children- Gift From God - Poem by Valsa George

Bundles of joy dropped from heaven
Holding enormous possibilities
Acorns from which giant oaks grow
The hope and light of the world
The pride and possession of parents
Adorable for their innocence
Unmatched in directness
Genuine and unpretentious
Symbols of forthright candor
Who do not stretch their lips
Into awkward smiles
Or utter sugar coated words,
If they harbor any dislike for you or me
Nor shed crocodile tears
When they are joyous inside

Alas, as they grow into adults
Get trained in all tricks of the world!
Guide and direct them in the right way
Knowing they are the hope of the world
And the priceless gift from God!

    So Pretty!
    Or utter sugar coated words,
    If they harbor any dislike for you or me

    Children are indeed the best gifts one can have. Beautiful and cute to the core, innocent and naughty.. The poem reminded me of Henry Vaughan's 'The Retreat' and the 'angel infancy' he talked about.. Experience is always something that corrupts the innocence.. A wonderful poem Valsa ma'am.. Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

    Superb poem about children.
    I love, love, love them.
    And it was such a pleasure to read this poem.
    The ending contains also so much wisdom.
    Let us not teach our children too many tricks and let ourselves also be still a bit (or a lot) child.
