LITTLE LEGS We'd been shopping one eve, he was just 26 months But my son's little legs could carry him no more. 'Twas the week before Christmas, the stores were lit up; So excited was he but he curled up on the floor. So tired and spent, he slept like a babe In the midst of the aisle of trucks, toys and pegs. No doubt he was dreaming of a bright Christmas morn. He was just 26 months, with fat little legs. Now he's 26 years, 6-feet tall and so thin; His legs are much longer, like two skinny twigs And he can shop on his own for hours on end. But I'll always remember those fat little legs. © ELR 2013
