My Son

My son sits in the house

    on rainy spring time days

Imagining the fun

    he will have under the sunny rays


My son finds bugs

    and toads and frogs

And squirmy little snakes

    that live beneath the logs


He walks along the stream

    that’s hidden in the trees

And returns with muddy shoes

    after every stormy breeze


As my son goes walking

    down the street

Who do you think

    that he will meet?


To the man who was

    walking his dog today

He asked if the dog

    had time to play


The man said he must

    hurry back home

He had to feed

    his big dog Jerome


He and his dog would

    return to play ball

But the man said that

    my son might be too small


My son saw the kites

    flying in the sky

He asked if he

    could give it a try


They said the wind

    was so strong today

A little boy might

    get blown away


My son saw the geese

    walking along

The honking sounded like

    a joyful song


Don’t get too close,

    a boy with no bread

Can be in danger

    with a goose that’s not fed


My son climbed up high

    into a tree

He said he was looking

    at a strange looking bee


He thought He would climb up

    and then right back down

But he decided to stay

    he could see the whole town


My son got tired

    and came home to eat

He said after lunch

    he had some friends to meet


He met his friends at the park

    and played on the swings

They made up stories

    of all types of things


First they imagined

    they went to the moon

And ate huge piles

    of ice cream with a spoon


In their thoughts

    they went to a farm

And played in the loft

    of an old barn


They went to a city

    and climbed a high tower

They were able to return

    in less than an hour


They lived in the past

    and rode on horseback

They decided to help build

    the first railroad track


They went to the future

    where cars were like planes

And walking around

    was very, very strange


My son is having fun

    and learning while he plays

As his Dad, I want to be near

    to help him through all his days
