To his parents who wished him on time.
"Don't be late!" they'd say in a mannered stern way
Dylan mockingly would pantomime.
Then he'd stroll along pastures so gorgeous and green
It caused Dylan to pause and take in the scene
He'd forget about time, and his parents warning
Soaking in scenery sublime.
He'd dream about dream worlds up in the sky,
And caves undiscovered in mountains so high,
He wouldn't stop till dinner drew nigh,
Then down from his dream world he'd climb.
Ten past the mark, he'd arrive dilatory,
His parents would frown as he told them his story,
Of rainbows and sunsets and mountainous glory,
Dylan, for chiding was prime.
"Dylan dear boy, why dilly dally with joy?
To timeliness you have grown cold.
"It's time to grow up, my Dylan dear pup,"
But opinions Dylan did hold.
"Dear Mom, dear Dad! You've not noticed the sun!
All bright, and all brilliant, all colored with fun,
Something just like it, you know there's not one,
The beauty of it can't be told.
"The ocean it roars with the voice of a lion,
Crashing as forceful as a tempest's scion,
The value of these is strictly why I am,
Respectfully being so bold.
"If you'd tarry a moment I'm sure you would see,
These sights are worth seeing, my plight and my plea,
Grandeur is grander, when noting they be,
A grandness that should not be sold.
The color of sunset, showed parents the funs that,
They had been missing out on.
They smiled at Dylan, who was not a villain,
But a lesson for this brilliant fawn.
"Dylan we see now that you are quite right,
Many new wonders are seen in our sight,
But Dylan your thoughts are off only a slight,
On you a new concept will dawn.
"Enjoy your surroundings, without being late,
There's more than daydreaming wrapped up in your fate,
Heed life's time and charm for a sterling trait,
A world balanced for you will be drawn."
Then Dylan realized his parents were wise,
If he were on time, he'd never be prize,
Of detention and cold food, and spanking caused cries,
That bad habit should be all gone.
Dylan reined passion, his parents did cash in,
Advice to create some downtime.
This family unique, did cease to critique,
And always had dinner on time.
