    Of Children

    Little toddler,

    You mimic me.

    I stand, I sit,

    You stand, you sit,

    Alike.

    I am your model;

    What I am, you’ll be,

    At least

    Partially.

    Dear Father,

    I am the babe

    To you.

    Can I be as this child

    And learn to mimic too?
