Growing Up Poems
Little boys are treasures Who are worth their weight in gold And charm everyone around them From the time they're hours old. They're Mommy's little darling, They're a special pal to Dad, And they bring the very happiest days A family's ever had! My day-old son is plenty scrawny, his mouth is wide with screams, or yawny; His ears seem larger than he's needing, His nose is flat, his chin's receding. His skin is very, very red, He has no hair upon his head, and yet I'm proud as proud can be, To hear you say he looks like me. One small hand to hold in yours, One small face to smile, One wet kiss as he says "good-night" One small child.
Though Life will rob me of my childhood days, And hedge a way for free, unbidden feet, It cannot steal my childhood thoughts and lays, Nor break the spell that lets me hear the beat Of Nature's heart, and catch her whisper sweet. It is infancy's old age When the first teeth go; It's the turning of the page When the first teeth go; It's farewell to merry youth With its innocence and truth, With its tenderness and ruth, When the first teeth go. There are novelties of pain When the first teeth go; Quick to lose and slow to gain, When the first teeth go; Ugly vacancies appear, New and lisping tones we bear 'Tis a most erratic year When the first teeth go. Ah, the sober thoughts we think When their first teeth go, And the rising tears we wink When their first teeth go! For the coming teeth must chew Many meals of bitter rue, And their sorrows come in view As their first teeth go. Yes, but grand teeth come instead, When the first teeth go, Strong for meat and white for bread, When the first teeth go; Though the crust is hard and dry, Health and power in it lie, And there's better by and by; Let the first teeth go!

Submit your work, meet writers and drop the ads. Sarah Isma May Plane en route to adulthood. To realize the truths and the smiles they fake, Growing up to see only the image portrayed- was only for your sake. To see the hollow sadness from the two people, who once i thought was happiest. Its just the fire in them burning out, only dim enough for them to keep me going- so i don't burn out too.
