Little Boys-How I Adore Them

Sticky fingers dirty faces

always running competitive races


Cars and tractors, blocks and boats

adventurous feats and mud-stained coats

Riding bikes and trikes down bumpy roads

in search of bugs and frogs and toads

Guns and swords and broken britches

bloodied knees and endearing kisses

Rough and tough yet caring and loving

exploring and conquering, exhausted cuddling

Wanting to marry their mommy one day

idolizing daddy in so

many ways.

Little  boys, who can resist

a weed bouquet in a chubby fist?
