I have done all these things with my grandsons, only not quite as poetically. I thoroughly enjoyed the poem.

Congratulations Jim! What a beautiful entry. Made me miss my babies (all grown now). Loved the last verse, my favorite, and I found myself singing along too....

Well done!

This one brought tears to my eyes....And I don't tear easily.
I love how you portray the intimacy of the relationship in that last verse.

Thanks for sharing it.

Dear Jim, Yes, a man wrote this! I think it makes it that much more powerful...Powerful yet so delicate...two souls bonding forever with these precious words. I pray one day I will be blessed with a grandchild to share this with. Thank you for this gift and Congratulations!

Outstanding...what a beautiful, lyrical, tender lullaby. What a wonderful word picture - I can picture a father in a rocking chair at the midnight hour in the golden light of a nightlight lulling his little one to sleep. A huge congratulations on your 1st place win and well deserved EC!
