The Poignancy of Boyhood

There is a poignancy in boyhood... The high voice, and ineptitude, The yearning to be free of mother's strings; The awkwardness of age fifteen, to wit A boyish sullenness. There are some things lost when manhood gained - And mothers cry on thinking. ---------------------------------------------------------- Featured poem of the week commencing 8/13/2017
