Sonnet: The Greatest Joy On Earth Is Children - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

The greatest joy on earth is our children;
To see them born healthy and grow up well;
To see them acquire God's precious ken,
That guides them to Heaven, avoiding hell.

What joy it is to see them walk on fours!
And learn to move, to utter sounds with sense;
What joy it is to hear their mental stores!
To see them worldly-wise, avoid non-sense.

What, joy to see the child, Father of man!
What joy to see them outdo their parents!
What joy when things we cannot do, they can!
What joy to see their God-given talents?

Our children are the apples of our eyes;
The Almighty God, we see, in their guise.
