Fear not, my child

Unsteady weak knobbly knees
Blurry world through long eyelashes
Drooling mouth taste of milk
Nose twitching what a trick
Gentle push it resists
Stand up baby, mama persists
Falling the only way to learn
Long strides none can outrun
Fear not the mighty lion
For it will keep on trying
Smell enemies in time
Live well into your prime
With baby shoots you are content
Soon by tall acacias you will stand
Let go your mama, it’s enough
The only way I can show love
Remember always
Your elevated status
Today a mere calf
Yet still a proud giraffe

  1. Greetings,

    Oh…I like this a lot. Your rhyming is so very nice to the ears.

    Thank you for this.

    All good wishes,



      1. Your rhyming is quite nice. I love the, sometimes direct, sometimes slanting, rhyming.

        All good wishes,



I would love to have your thoughts
