Just for fun we all had to bring along a poem of our own composition. I decided that since last year was the birth of my 1st son it was somewhat inevitable that I would choose him as my subject matter. So just for fun here it is.
It was 2012 on the 4th of May
That the little man was giving us a sign
And after a dash and then a delay
He was born at 3:29
Alexander Louis had finally arrived
Friday's child both loving and giving
Those first few weeks he cried and cried
Leaving Mummy and Daddy reeling and spinning
Things seemed to settle after a time
Did I tell you that he's a Taurus?
Before too long he opened his eyes
And that was the first time he saw us
Our little man just loves to smile
He greets family, friends and strangers
He certainly knows how to turn on the style
His personality's contagious
Once he's had milk and spooned food at day
Just say the word and he'll be ready
Our thumb sucking boy just loves to play
Bricks, trolley, lights and firefly Freddie
Now he's older and starting to crawl
It won't be long before he can walk
Then he'll be driving us up the wall
Before you know it he'll be starting to talk
Our little man makes us so happy
We'll prepare his way and guide him well
Despite the pay back we find in his nappy
We just love him to bits and are under his spell
I don't suppose this entry into the poetry world will concern the establishment but it was fun to write non the less.
Hope you enjoyed it!
