Love That Boy

I thought it would be appropriate to have the first post I write be from my favorite 'boy' poem. {This is the English teacher in my coming out!} It's a bit old fashioned, but it's in my 1st son's baby scrapbook and very special to me. It is called "Love That Boy" by Walter Dean Meyers and it is fitting because we are all on this blog for one reason - because we love our boys!! :)

Love That Boy
Love that boy,
like a rabbit loves to run
I said I love that boy
like a rabbit loves to run
Love to call him in the morning
love to call him
"Hey there, son!"

He walk like his Grandpa,
Grins like his Uncle Ben.
I said he walk like his Grandpa,
And grins like his Uncle Ben.
Grins when he’s happy,
When he sad, he grins again.

His mama like to hold him,
Like to feed him cherry pie.
I said his mama like to hold him.
Like to feed him that cherry pie.
She can have him now,
I’ll get him by and by

He got long roads to walk down
Before the setting sun.
I said he got a long, long road to walk down
Before the setting sun.
He’ll be a long stride walker,
And a good man before he done.
