Oh, for a little while
You nurture us,
Dear darling child
With pure lips and dimpled smile
With innocence
In blue-sky eyes
And wonderment
In each new day

Your wee milk-cup
Holds the world
While we drink up
The wonderment
Of untainted joy
In milk-mustache grins
From girl and boy
Before they fly away
