My Children

My heart is full
My spirits high
I am glowing
And bright
I have children
And I teach them
What is right

  5. You have an interesting rhythm going on there. And this is a very positive poem, I love it. But I do wonder what you mean by ‘right’. I’m guessing moral code I suppose. They are quite cute!

  6. I agree to that. That’s what we parents also do with our children. We always want to teach them right.

      I’m glad you like the poem and photo. The house is actually the 23-room Pittock Mansion, which overlooks Portland. Our home is much smaller.

      I appreciate your nomination for the Love and Kindness Award. It reminds me that my most liked poem didn’t have a dark tone to it. Instead, well, it sided with love and kindness. Definitely two good things to have on your side. Thank you for the nomination.
