I've sampled strange concoctions
That would choke a gallant horse!
And chased about a hundred kites
O'er trees, and lakes, and courts.
From training wheels, to backyard squeals
When "Rover" jumped the fence...
I've reaped an education,
Which defines a Seventh Sense!
Through scrapes and many splinters
Plus "Sorry Mommy!" tears-
I feel I've come a million miles,
In just the last few years.
From booster seat to driver's seat
It seems a short, short time.
Then begins the truest test
Of a "patient" mind!
But God gives us an inner strength
(I find down on my knees...)
To rise the wiser parent
From a simple child-like "Please!"
