Two very big words, when it comes to children communication is above all the most important thing. And knowing they can approach is so important! In any scenario.

Thank you...Teddy

I love minimalist poetry. There is much I've tried to say to my grandchildren through poetry, but actually this covers it.
Thank you for reading and commenting!

I am constantly surprised by the ingenuity of your work. I am on the edge here. If it had been any other day or maybe even any other person, I'm sure that my reaction might have been much different. I won't say that I don't know how, because I do. If you understand that, then you will understand how I am on the edge. ~ Geezer.

Not sure I would call this poetry, but I would least you've spoken out loudly with two words.
Thumbs up dear.

imagine me, sage, bearded old Homer before a semi-circle of Greek warriors letting on that I have an inspiring, rousing epic to recite in my nasal sing-song voice: "Now when the Child of Morning, rosy-colored Dawn appeared." Instead I feed them two words: "Dawn came."
Hey, Homer, yells young Telemachus; let's hear a poem that tells a story like JerryK's would. Kidding dear (but I'm not ,lol.) I hate minimalism.
But--I still remain yours, dear poetess. Jerry

Ha, ha! And Telemachus would be correct - JerryK is one of the finest story-tellers, too! But I'm glad we all aren't driven by the same muse in the same poetic direction. There would be no diversity and we would learn nothing.
Thank you for reading!
