Valsa George


Picture Perfect


The baby sat joyfully on her lap
The mother on his tender thighs did tap
It tickled the boy to laugh and laugh
He was just one and a half

Both invariably enjoyed that sport
No one came in between their fun to abort
The baby had such fairy grace
Many a kiss she planted on his cherubic face

The blissful pair looked ever so cute
Who on earth can their oneness thwart?
It is a love that runs into eternity’s length
A bond that yields to no brutal strength

Joy gleamed in their dewy eyes
The mother huddled tight her lovely prize
On my mind’s lens is caught that image
I laminated it to keep it from all damage

    An apt title, a perfect poem of happiness to make one's day! 10/10.
    'Both invariably enjoyed that sport
    No one came in between their fun to abort; '
    Yes, it's a sport that both the participants heartily enjoy, as do the onlookers, and it has no losers.
    'It is a love that runs into eternity’s length
    A bond that yields to no brutal strength'
    Absolutely!
    'On my mind’s lens is caught that image
    I laminated it to keep it from all damage'
    Thanks for sharing with us, the 'laminated picture'. It will lie undamaged in our hearts too. (Report) Reply

    You painted a wonderful picture of a mother and son that
    has a special bond. The harshness of time will not separate
    this tie. The special moments and great love will withstand the
    test. A loving and inspiring write full of devotion. (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem. Children bring out the best in people. I can see the mom and child in my mind also, you preserved their image very well in this poem. It's laminated in poetry. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    The poem is about the relation reflecting heavenly bliss...yes, it will not be damaged as you have laminated it and preserved it in your verses...In Virginia Woolf there is a scene in which Lily the artist was unsuccessfully trying to complete her picture with the mother and the child as the model, but she had a problem with her vision...you completed that picture here! ! !
