    Default For poems my 9 year old son, Justin, now writes.

    Justin has written his first poem.

    Xtra Little Poem Into It Joy

    Jesus songs are rivers of joy that flows to our hearts
    it then flows to other body parts.
    Kids sight in the future is his might.

    Sweet, tell Justin that was pretty darned cool, and he's off to an outstanding start!
    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.
    Winston Churchill

    Yes! And even sad and angry sometimes as well. My daughter made me sad and angry with the first guy she chose. I tried to warn her but being stubborn like me she refused to hear. Two years with him and she found out the hard way.
    No, I have not told her, "I told you so."!!
    I've resisted that urge a few hundred times.

    Justin says thanks... -Tyr

    Justin wrote a poem at school last week. This morning at breakfast he recited it to me from memory.
    Actually it was fairly good- considering his age. I then asked him, if poetry has now started to be interesting to him again, especially since these last 4 or 5 months, he loves to read mine out loud.
    He answered with a solid yes...
    With that reply- I told him to-- go write a poem on paper, and take your time--give it to me when you the author consider it a finished creation..
    Here is the poem he wrote, which to me, shows great promise, should he ever choose to become a poet and actually write!
    Just remember he is only ten years old. ok?
    I just love how he says- when I--was-- a kid! As if he is now grown!----Tyr

    Why I Love To Be A Kid

    When I was a little kid
    I was called little lid
    I played a lot of games
    I got some fame

    Now I am much older
    as time ran, I got bolder
    I learned how to ride a bike
    to go on a wilderness hike

    Now I do math, read and write
    learned it is best not to fight

    When I was a kid I loved my Ipad
    that was bought for me by my dad
    When I lost it I was sad
    And I was extremely mad

    When I told dad I did pout and want to fight
    He said, son that very bad way is not right
    It is not how a kid should be taught
    It was your gift, another will be bought.

    the end.
    Justin, Ryan-Tapican Lindley

    That's great, Tyr!! Lead him in that direction. I've always found that all folks, kids and adults, are much smarter for reading more. Everyone I know that were voracious readers were also intelligent folks, and it seems to be that way here for your little fella already!!
