for isaac and jude

Date May 30, 2008

Deep in the woods in the darkest of night

there is a place where ships take flight.

Where little boys roam and ride and explore

through caves and caverns along ocean floors.

Past monsters and trolls and sword wielding men

over mountains and walls and back again.

Dancing with mermaids and ladies fair

while fighting with pirates and bandits there.

So, climb aboard this dream bound fleet.

Sleep, my prince, there are kings to meet!

    Hi Emily,
    I found your blog from icrafty’s list of favorite blogs. Your poem is wonderful! Are you the poet? I’d love to use this poem in our baby’s nursery with your permission.

    You are a natural writer/poet! I love this one just as much as I love the ‘little girl’ poem! But this one is better because I actually have a little boy to read it to… 🙂

    Em! This is too good! I can not wait to read it to my little man when he is born!

    Aunt Kay told me when you are coming home, but you know me, I forgot. So, when do I get to see you?

    […] a challenge. I jumped on it. Next, I wimped out. Then, the ragamuffin of blogger stardom posted a comment on this little website of mine. He punked me out. With zero shame. So, I’m in. […]
