To A Boy Was Given

To A Boy Was Given

A Poem by Bradley
"

You wouldn't throw 26 letters at a child and let them decide the order and the sound of each. Neither should a child be expected to figure out their body's purpose all on their own.

"
Part of a body to live in,
Two hands a boy was given.
He wondered, what can they do?
So a rock he picked up and threw.

It landed in mud
With a wet thud.

Then up high he reached, up to the sky,
To grasp a branch and begin to climb.
Out on a limb, a bird’s nest he spotted
With three blue eggs allotted.

Part of a body to live in,
Two hands a boy was given.
He wondered, what can they do?
So an egg he picked up and threw.

It hit the ground
And was no longer round.

Author's Note

Bradley
My plan is to add more verses, like "A voice the boy was given", mind, stomach, heart, feet., etc. What do you think of this so far? I'm not sure if I want to break up the stanzas like I did. For example, instead of going 4, 2, 4, 4, 2, go 6, 4, 6.
