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!
Congratulations on your first place win . I enjoyed your poem as much the second time as I did the first.
Congratulations on your win. This poem delighted me through and through!
I never got to this during the week. Now that I have found it, I am delighted. Very nice, and congratulations!
Lovely piece that left me with an "aah" as I walked down memory lane. Congratulations!
Perfectly lovely...
Rich congratulations on your EC. Just gorgeous! :)
I had not read this until today. I am thrilled to see you finally get the recognition your wonderful writing deserves!
Jim, this is just so past due and I couldn't be happier.
1st place and an EC!!


Loved it! Congratulations too! Too long coming...
Simply beautiful. Loved the phrase "nightlight gold." Congrats!
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.
Great entry -- Congratulations on your 1st place win!!
Jim, congratulations on your win with this sweet and precious lullabye poem.
Absolutely wonderful! Congratulations on your First place and EC! Very deserving.
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!
