Eyes stare at me In a blank pique, Crying bout frees A tantrum streak. You want to sleep Dear sleepy eyes, Discomfort peeps Through weary cries. You cry and strain As tears come out, You say it plain In breathless shouts. You mouth sighs pout In cranky voice, What's it about: The swaddle poise? I pick you up Embrace you child, My arms now cup Your crying wild. Sing lullabies To calm you down, Now by and by Eyes close sans frown. A catnap brief Can bring good cheer, We suffer grief For baby dear. Four adults here Spend time to care For you it's clear As tantrums wear. Baby tears wet As cranky shows, We seem to fret For all we know. Babyface moods Amplify blast, A precious good Makes love outlast. Baby now styles A bubbly fest, Baby's sweet smile Now spreads fond zest. Leon Enriquez 19 June 2018 Hamlet Place, ACT
