As the sun goes down
Its time for rest
My weary three sons
Put up thier best.
They putter and dink
They resist and slink
Away from the chores
That result in closed doors.
Its time for showers, teeth and hair,
At times I think they must
Gang up in a pair.
They can think of more reasons
Than the ocean has sand
To put off the inevitable
Of going to sleep.
But finally they
shut those weary, sweet eyes
Its off to dreamland
For three bedy-by guys.

I loved it too - but then, I've been there with you to grind my teeth in time with yours - they are precious, though

Sometimes the sweetest poems come from the most ordinary things. This is one of those times. Nice job.

Lor

Conjures up wonderful imagery here but what the heck is a "dink?"...My mind is wondering if it's a young lad with a lisp, an error or something american I haven't had the pleasure of..:-)))

But beautiful thoughts..

Sweet dreams

That brings back memories of my two boys younger years
