A Toddler's Prayer

A Toddler's Prayer

A Poem by Rita L. Sev
"

()

"

May your nap times be filled

with only sweet dreams

May your walks bring you through

the brightest sunbeams

May you always delight

in the simplest joys

May you dance every day

to the merriest noise

May your cookies be warm

and your milk frosty cold

And may you stay young,

even when you are old

Author's Note

Rita L. Sev
It is well known among my teaching colleagues that I do not have the gift for teaching our youngest students - 3 and 4 year olds. I am much more adept in a junior-high classroom. However, I am always delighted and intrigued by the little ones, so eager and unabashed... This is for them.

This is adorable & sweet! I've never had kids or experience with kids, but this would melt anyone's heart. It seems like this would make a nice childhood song, too. The rhyming is great & the word choices are fresh & original-sounding.

Heartfelt, sincere and encouraging to the young ones. They should look back and see how this humble and great teacher shaped their positive future. An excellent one....:)))).
