Where Do The Children Grow

Where Do The Children Grow
by  Christy R. Dawson

When you see a smiling face,
their happiness all over the place singing, laughing,
cries of glee
come they say, play with me
the slide, the swing, the monkey bars
look at them close
to see who they are
lots of races
Ready, Set, Go
this is how the children grow

if you watch them everyday

you’ll see they learn
as they play they’ll do
what they see
and say what they hear
you’re their teacher
throughout the years
their ideas and thoughts
in their eyes shine
imagination is a glimpse
of their mind
when you’re not looking, don’t you know
this is when the children
grow

watch them as
they learn to walk
listen when they talk
keep them safe
away from harm
wrap them gently
within your arms
teach them to share and
how to take turns

set good examples
from which they will learn
at home, at school,
wherever they go
this is where the children grow
