Children singing and playing instruments,
Sometimes reaching for the stars,or just Mars.
Parents wanting their offspring to be on the tele,
With fire in their belly,who would back against them.
As half term beckons,and frosty mornings fair warnings,
Let’s celebrate that we have our young ones to counteract our cynicism.
It’s tough being a parent,of that there is no doubt,
So when perks come your way as mum or Dad,Gran or Grandad,
Grab them with open arms,because there are Enough knocks in a family.
Yes,let’s feed off the Joy of Youth,tell them just how much you love them,
Now,that’s a real truth.
