Someone was reading this again, so I put it back up to be read again---:D Hope you enjoy it!!!:D

Come all dear children: come.
Listen to the bumblebee hum!
Watch the squirrel run & play.
While chippie has a busy day.

He finds little seeds & acorns too.
Why not ask him to share with you?
What's that you say? He won't share.
But then, you really don't even care.

Who wants to eat acorns as he does?
He says he likes it, just because.
Because why? I want to know.
Why does he love those acorns so!

I think I'd get a bellyache.
I think that's why we like cake.
Of course, we also eat the good stuff!
Like peanut butter & marshmellow fluff.

Oh, your mommy makes you eat your peas.
But, peanut butter is as good as cheese.
Peas, & cheese, & peaunt butter.
Might not taste as good as fluffernutter.

But to chippy, his acorns & seeds are better.
Yet, watch him run, he's a cute go-getter.
You say, you love the critters no matter what.
They all are funny, even your silly mutt.

Your dog is funny, is that what you said?
You love it when he sleeps in your bed.
For then he's funny as funny can be.
No, I can't let you both come live with me!

Dogs aren't allowed anywhere near my place.
You wouldn't want to see my landlord's face.
He's funny about critters, & about children too.
So maybe, I should move in with you?

Oh, I'm just kidding, I'm too old to move.
I'm over the hill, what does that prove?
You want to come with me over that hill.
Well, to tell the truth, one day you will.

But for now, God wants you to run & play.
But mind your manners, & remember to obey.
Enjoy the critters both indoors & out.
Go have fun, & don't scream or pout.

Just be who God made you, & have fun.
Because that's a good idea for everyone.
Watch the squirrels, bumblebees & chippy too!
Never leave out your doggie cause he loves you!

I can also remember a very long time ago.
I was your age & loved the critters, you know.
That's why I want you to enjoy them as I did.
Because inside me lives that same little kid!

You're right Stevie,
My hubby always tells me that too,
& he loves that about me... I'm used to being who I am,
so I just want to keep being me!!!

& Brother, I'm glad you loved my poem for children...
Does that mean there is a little boy in there somewhere too?
If that is something hard to answer, then, I think your sweetie
would tell me if I asked her.

Love, Sis, Patty :D (Truthfollower)

Those lovely days can not be forgotten
Again, you brought it back alive

Love you & thanks for sharing how you

Brother David,

Thank you for reading my children's poem.
It's an older one from 2011 when I was new
here, but, the message is the same no matter
how long ago it was written.

God bless you brother,

Love, Big Sis Patty :) (Truthfollower)

Princess Tai,

I'm so glad you enjoyed
my poem as much as you
did to read it to your
kidlets... Love that
expression, it made me
laugh, sounds really
cute... My own kidlets
are all grownup now, but,
I have fun even now writing
poems to them & my sweet
grandkidlets. LOL...

Thanks so much for letting
me know you are reading it
to your kidlets again tonight...

Ask them if they want me to write
a special one just for them, & I'll
be glad to do it... I'd need their
names if they did want one because
I'd personalize it for them. You can
PM me & let me know their names if
they want their own poem. If you tell
me something about each one I could
use that as a springboard to write
the poem... I do this for folks around
here who ask me to write poems for them.
It's up to them though, just a suggestion
IF & should they want a poem from me.

Love, Big Sis Patty :) (Truthfollower)

Princess Beryl,

Yes, the children I write poems for do love it!
Some of them have saved all my writings I did for
them & now are teenagers or even adults now.

Thanks so much for the neat 10!!! It shows me
how much you liked my write... It's appreciated
greatly. I like to get a feel for what folks like
or dislike about my writing.

I haven't been on here much lately, & still try
to get on when I can. I'm doing as well as I can
too!!! Some ailments do hinder though, but, God's
grace keeps me going!!! As you know , our God is
an awesome God!!! :D


Love you dear Sis, Big Sis Patty :)

I hadn't seen this jewel before. I love to take the dogs to the park next door and let them chase the squirrels and let children pet the dog's soft fur. We should never grow up, at least not all the way.

Hello Brother Lawrence,

Thanks for the neat reply about you
being able to take your dog to the park.
Sounds like you have a little kid in
you too!!! Like you said though, it's
good to not grow up all the way. :D

God bless you, brother,

Love, Big Sis Patty :)
