Little boys come in all shapes and sizes,
Shy and adventurous, full of surprises,
With misshapen halos and
Small dirty faces, and sweet, sticky chins.
They'll keep you so busy, and yet all the while
Nothing can brighten the world like
And no greater treasure has brought homes more joy
Than a curious, active, and lovable boy!
God made a world out of His dreams, of magic mountains, oceans & streams.
Prairies and plains and wooded land, then paused and thought,
"I need someone to stand on top of the mountains, to conquer the sea, explore the plains and climb the trees, someone to start out small and grow sturdy, strong like a tree and so.....
He created Boys, full of spirit and fun to explore and conquer, to romp and run with dirty faces, banged up chins, with courageous hearts and boyish grins.
When He had completed the task He'd begun, He surely said,
"That's a job well done."
As Long as There are Little Boys
by LaVerne P. Larson
As long as there are little boys
For mischief and mud pies.
For charming you, alarming you,
and coaxing lullabies
As long as there are little boys,
So busy everywhere.
Your world is sure to be
A happy, loving place to share.
A little boy needs daddy
A little boy needs daddy
For many, many things;
Like holding him high off the ground
Where the sunlight sings!
Like being the deep music
That tells him all is right
When he awakens frantic with
The terrors of the night.
Like being the great mountain
That rises in his heart
And shows him how he might get home
When all else falls apart.
Like giving him the love
That is his sea and air,
So diving deep or soaring high
He'll always find him there.
I Have a Boy
Author: Hugh M. Pierce
I've a wonderful Boy, and I say to him, "Son,
Be fair and be square in the race you must run.
Be brave if you lose and be meek if you win.
Be better and nobler than I've ever been.
Be honest and noble in all that you do,
And honor the name I have given to you.
I have a boy and I want him to know
We reap in life just about as we sow,
And we get what we earn, be it little or great,
Regardless of luck and regardless of fate.
I will teach him and show him the best that I can,
That it pays to be honest and upright, a man.
I will make him a pal and a partner of mine,
And show him the things in this world that are fine.
I will show him the things that are wicked and bad,
For I figure this knowledge should come from his dad.
I will walk with him, talk with him, play with him, too;
And to all of my promises strive to be true.
We will grow up together, I'll too be a boy,
And share in his trouble and share in his joy.
We'll work out our plans when we both will be men.
And oh, what a wonderful joy this will be,
No pleasure in life could be greater to me.
