The childrens poems 15 Graham

 

You were

7 or 8 years old 

and all

that could

be heard 

throughout the

house was 

dinosaurs

dinosaurs

dinosaurs!

 

not just any dinosaur 

we had to go

twice a month down

to the San Diego

Natural history museum

for a $40.00 Carnegie 

collection dinosaur.

 

to say in those 

days that that 

put a dent in

my beer

budget and

golf money is

an understatement,

 

but each month

just like the moon

following the sun

they came.

 

I might not of

been as tipsy

in those days

as before,

 

and my buddies 

often left for golf 

without me,

 

but I would not

of changed a

thing.

 

to be intoxicated by

the joy on your

face with

each new dinosaur

we bought,

 

to hear you struggle to

say each new 

dinosaurs name

over and over again

until you

got it right,

 

these moments

with you

became the

bearings of

my life. 

 

and even now

you at 34 years old

we still talk about 

our treasures and

you have each

and every one,

 

and I can't wait for

you to have a

son and to

hear the 

echo in

this old man's 

heart.

 

dinosaurs

dinosaurs

dinosaurs.!

 

and answer "yes they

are my beautiful

grandson,

 

yes they are".
