In addition to Mr. T taking sophomore English in his high school class, he is also taking the first half of junior English on-line via a large university. I’m really impressed with his drive for his education, and I’ve said extra prayers for him with everything on his plate, but sometimes, even the extra work is fun.
Tonight he came in and asked if I would help him write a poem for his on-line class – and he did such a good job, I have to share!
I crawled all day through thick brush and thorny vines
To see her eyes that are so divine
I evaded predators big and small
Fast and short, round and tall
With me I carried my parcel and a sack
Full of dishes and utensils and a tasty snack
After a long days journey to see my sweet
I pulled out a blanket and set up a feast
Once the dishes were placed and the last candle was lit
I crossed my six legs as I prepared to sit
Then I looked up, saw her crawling towards me
And I had to shout “Oh, no! Lookout! The branch is falling from the tree!”
Crisis averted she gave me a hug
My one and only, my little lady bug.
Sometimes it’s the little things that make the days brighter. After he finished his assignment, he came back to the living room and we talked. Not about anything special, the book I’m currently reading, his extra-curricular activities and such, but it is so nice that even after all this time, and through the teenage years, my son still wants my help and likes to sit and talk to me. 🙂
