Day by Day
Day by day , darling children,©10/18/2016 Carol Welch
walk, grow, and learn;
grandparents though you now are,
go gently, dear children; see the days turn.
Let the sun rise, and gaze at the star
Each day, many minutes,
the clock ticks away,
to savor, discover, and hold,
seeing, with eyes wide open at day,
in common soil, finding nuggets of gold.
