A Parent Poem...

This one would have been good for Mother's Day, but I didn't have it then. I found it in a copy of "The Budget." An anonymous person from Ohio sent it in.

A Young Mother

I saw a young mother
With eyes full of laughter,
And two little shadows
Came following after;
Whenever she moved
They were always right there,
Hanging on to her skirts,
Holding on to her chair,
Before her, behind her,
An adhesive pair.

“Don’t you ever get weary,
As day after day
Your two little tagalongs
Get in your way?”


She smiled as she shook
Her pretty, young head,
And I’ll always remember
The words that she said;
“It’s good to have shadows
That run when you run,
That laugh when you’re happy
And hum when you hum,
For you only have shadows
When your life is full of sun."
