We Are our Children's Audience

If I was to write a poem for the children
I’d color it with all the colors of the rainbow
I’d write about how important it is to talk

In times of the unknown
In times, of a virus
We can’t even escape it on a night out at the cinema

When you feel frightened
It’s ok to feel scared
Bewildered and lost
Reach out to someone who will listen
With a kind ear, share your despair

Thoughts, then become yesterday’s problems
Tomorrow is a new day
Come what may

With an audience and a hug
Our kids
Can really get through anything.

That adults capture the attention of children.
Need to keep em occupied during these times too.

If I may, you might think about a period after despair because the next word is thoughts and although a separate line it is the next line so I read it like this: Share your despair thoughts as one sentence even though you have a comma there. I might be the only one to stop there so I don't really know Hmm.

Now ya really have me going. I'm gonna pull one of my very few children's poems from one of my books later on tonight. Grr the 24 hour rule ..but oh well, rules are rules lol
Later now,
Mark

Thanks for that, its reads better now. Hey we do need to listen to the children because now more than ever they are lost within a moment that none of us have ever seen, so to give reasurance and love will help a great deal. Always great to see you on my page, i cant wait to read your next poem. Have a great Sunday.

Thank you...Teddy

The cadence is wonderfully strong; near the end I felt pulled alone. Such simple words which sounds out so elegant gives this added charm.

What a beautiful review, I'm blown away that you found this to be elegant with charm , our kids are worth a lot and I wanted to show that within these words. Honoured to have you here.

Thank you...Teddy

The poem is also very genuine, and this comes through as well.
