Child’s Play

I read this poem in one of my books on children’s poetry, A Book of Verses Compiled for Children compiled by Edward Verrail Lucas, and thought that it greatly depicted Hannah’s first adventure to the park. 

“Nurse’s Song”

By:  William Blake

When the voices of children are heard on the green,

And laughing is heard on the hill,

My heart is at rest within my breast,

And everything is still.

“Then come home, my children, the sun is gone down,

And the dews of night arise;

Come, come, leave off play, and let us away,

Till the morning appears in the skies.

“No, no, let us play, for it is yet day,

And we cannot go to sleep;

Besides, in the sky the little birds fly,

And the hills are all covered with sheep.”

“Well, well, go and play till the light fades away,

And then go home to bed.”

The little ones leaped, and shouted, and laughed,

And all the hills echoed.”

About themommyfactor

First of all, I am a child of God. I was blessed to come to know Him as my personal Savior when I was just 5 years old! God has blessed me with a wonderful husband, Jamie, who puts up with all of my crazy ideas; a beautiful daughter, Hannah, who is teaching me how to mother in God's grace; a handsome little boy, Ephraim, who keeps us all laughing; and bossy, sweet-natured Harmony, who is never boring! We are enjoying the ups and downs of being parents and look forward to meeting others who are on the same unpredictable journey of parenthood!
