Little Yellow Socks

* Written for my daughter, who really does have a precious pair of Little Yellow Socks. Little Yellow Socks by Amy Swanson 12/5/2008 Little yellow socks running down the hall "Slow down with those socks on," I'd yell... too late, the fall! Little yellow socks padding softly late at night climbing up into my lap one more hug, out goes the light. Little yellow socks follow me with squeals of laughter; Oh how she loves to run in them, Begging me to come chase after! Little yellow socks... now not being worn a lot. My little girl is growing up, No longer just a tot. Little yellow socks will be cast aside someday I must guard these precious moments; in my heart, they'll safely stay.

This is great Amy. We had one child, a boy, now 57 years old. I always wanted a little girl too, a little girl with yellow sox would have been wonderful. Love, daver

Oh so very true. They grow up too darned fast! My children were toddlers yesterday, I swear, but now they're suddenly almost 18 and 15! *sniffle* Where did the time go? Wonderful poem that tugs at my heart with those "little yellow socks"... ~Juliane

So, so true... These days pass in the blink of an eye. Enjoy your children while they still are children, because it's over so fast. This poem is excellent. I love the repetition, the cadence flows perfectly, and the subject matter dear to any parent's heart. Thanks for sharing. Please read my "I Don't Want"... kind of along the same subject matter; you may enjoy. TOM
