A Little Boy to His Mommy


A Mother's Day Gift to My Wife, Inspired by Verses
Written to Her by My Sons When They Were Little

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
You're cute as a button.
Warm as a shoe.

Roses are red,
Grape jam is purply,
Your hugs leave me breathless.
Your kisses are slurpy.

Roses are red,
Chocolate is brown.
I think you are funny,
As good as a clown.

Roses are red,
Mustard is yellow.
If you weren't a girl,
You'd make a fine fellow.

Roses are red,
Spinach is green.
Other kids have Moms,
but you are a queen.
