a children’s poem by Thomas Davis written for Sonja and Mary when they were young
There was a song that I once heard
When I was very, very young.
I heard the songs of bright night stars
Cold singing in a silent tongue.
There’s no one else within the world
Who heard their silver lullabye,
But now I’m telling you, my loves:
Go out and listen to the sky!

Simply beautiful piece
Passing on the treasures we have acquired to the next generation is a wondrously fulfilling thing to do,
This will be passed to my Grandchildren. Thank you so much truly inspired. Love David
Beautiful poem, Thomas – the sky has so much to tell us. (Synchronicity that we both posted poems on “listening” – mine last night, yours this morning.)
I hope you’re doing as well as possible, Thomas. Thinking of you both!
Oh, this is wonderful indeed, Thomas–thank you! The child in me is more alive now than when I was young, so these poems of yours are delightful and soothing to my heart. I spoke with Betty earlier, she updated me re your health issues–I rejoice that it is good news, and will continue prayers for your complete healing and restored vigor! God bless you–love, Caddo
I loved this poem, Thomas! Makes me want to tell my children to go out and listen…
Lovely, lovely poem … bless you, Ethel and your wonderful family, Thomas; still sending you healing thoughts and prayers. 🙂 xox
Not just for kids…
