Sound of the Future

PAD Challenge day 6: For today’s prompt, write a poem about a sound.

Busy day-care day today, so for all the glorious ways this prompt could flow they are not mine for now:)! They're here!!! early today.

 With cheerful chatter
And pitter- patter
And freckle-splattered nose
With teddy bears
And teeny cares
And running shoes that glow
With darling grins
And dimpled chins
And wonder, full and free
Our children grow
Their future, oh,
Is up to you and me

The sound of something more
Than dash and dance and play and run
Is passing through our doors;
It is the people they’ll become

  1. Wonderful poem. Wonderful memories.

    1. Thank-you:) feeling the after-effects of nine 'little futures' tonight, but the meals are over, dishes washed, dried and put away, floors vacuumed and mopped. Tomorrow, Lord willing, is another day!


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed by the visit!
