Sonnet: Parents, Neglect Not Thy Children - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

Parents, tend thou to thy children with care;
Children are now more precious than before;
Like diamond brooch in necklaces, they are;
The family has become nuclear to core.

These are the days of small a family norm;
Accidents kill more than diseases can;
Pampered, unloved remain children in form;
Spare not the rod and spoil not child, O man.

What is the use of all thy hard-earned wealth?
Teach them the sense of values in their life;
Important is their body’s/ mind’s/ soul’s health;
Their problems own, they must face that are rife.

Excessive love will spoil its good purpose;
Too much of shade too makes a plant’s growth worse.
