twinkle, twinkle


so
the islands float
the sun sets
the moon goes up
the stars glide
in the night sky
and twinkle tonight.

to my famulee,
logan


we might make a poet out of him yet.
he's seven, so he's got plenty of time...

have a great weekend everyone!

Lovely Brian. Have a good weekend. (Can't believe I made it first!)

Ocean Girl said...

He's a poet and it is so lovely. I love that islands float and twinkle tonight and "famulee". I love, thank you.

Tracy said...

Wow, very nice poem, Logan! He's a chip off the old block, Brian. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Me said...

I think he's off to an amazing start...that's way better than half the stuff I write! :)

Wings said...

So sweet...

secret agent woman said...

Aw. I have a photo much like this of my fellows -my older son keeps it in a frame on his dresser.

Cop Mama said...

So precious! I have a little guy who says "Famulee" too! Love the pic, he looks so proud.

Teri said...

What a gorgeous couple of boys! You are truly blessed, Brian. I have never really been around boys much but the ones that I have it seems that they are so special. I bet your two are just as special.

Brian Miller said...

he wrote his on a little piece of paper (during class) and gave it to me earlier this week. he's a pretty cool guy and the original will go in the memory box...to show his girlfriend one of these days...smiles.

Vicki Lane said...

Happy weekend, Brian!

Katherine said...

What a clever little boy! He truly is your 'mini me' Brian... a chip off the old block'.
You must be so proud of him & he quite obviously is very proud of you. He wants to be like you!
What little gems your children are! Lovely photo.

THE BEATY said...

Bonnie, Original Art Studio said...

He twinkles and sparkles already ... like his Dad!

Everyday Goddess said...

Bliss-ings to your famulee.

LadyCat said...

Great job Logan! He is a very talented young man.

Jingle said...

Logan is cool,
so are you!
He loves his family,
He holds his younger sibling happily...

no worry,
he is one,
like father,
like son!

Jingle said...

Dear Logan:

Do you read your Dad's blog post?
Are you in 2nd grade?
I like your poem,
it paints a beautiful evening sky,
which is filled with wonders...
beautiful imagaintion!
You have your Dad proud!

read more,
write more,
get inspired,
love is never tired!
Happy March!

Have fun and laughter this weekend.

your reader,
Jingle
Who's Dad was an elementary teacher for years and orally made up verses for the family to enjoy
when she was young, Jingle did not, never thought she could write poems, but she simply did it when she was in college...She reads lots of books, fiction, poetry, pholosophy, and more...
Jingle wishes you best of luck in schooling and making friends.

You rock,
Logan!

Proving that the apple doesn't fall far from the poet-tree. ;)

steviewren said...

I think it's lovely. He's already a poet...we all know it!

Heidi said...

That's wonderful. He's already talented.
I love that my 11yo daughter likes to write too. I hope she continues with it. My 6yo son told me he wants to be a "writer and a draw-er" he said "I'll be the next Dr. Seuss!"

Ariel said...

Very cute... and a wonderful 'famulee' you have there. I'm sure he's going to be a great poet and I hope I get an opportunity to read them in the future.Just seven and those lines are beautiful.

LadyFi said...

'Islands float'... what a delightful line!

Bernie said...

Oh he has done a wonderful job of writing this poem for his family, I love it and wishing your family a wonderful weekend as well..........:-) Hugs

She Writes said...

That you may, that you might! :)

Sh@KiR@ CK said...

You should be so proud.... both my kids write too.. and never too young... for his girlfriends? Now, how COOL is that? Logan you are so precious. Have you a great weekend with the family...

hugs,
shakira

Ronda Laveen said...

I thought you wrote that. He's definitely a chip of a not so old block. The person that wrote that is not 7 in his soul. That person is ageless.

My compliments, ageless sire. (bowing before brilliance).

slommler said...

How lovely!! A budding poet!! Fabulous!
Hugs

Daniel said...

A little chip off the old block, eh? I bet the papa is proud.

Skye said...

Logan wrote that!?! Wow, great job Logan! And a great picture to go with it Brian! Cheers :)

Tom said...

cool...and he's rewriting Webster's too. All right, be a rebel!

TechnoBabe said...

I think "one of these days" is here, Brian.

Nessa said...

Looks to me like he already is a poet. Adorable picture.

Eternally Distracted said...

Jingle said...

Good Morning, Brian:


Hope that you and your family enjoy a relaxing and satisfying weekend.
sweet home,
sweet dreams!

logan is a poet, it is obvious!

cheers!

Jingle said...

beautiful family photo
with promising poetic smiles!

PattiKen said...

Wow. I'm thinking about the acorn, and all that. You know. I am especially impressed that Logan even knows what poetry is, let alone tries his hand at it, at age seven.

Good on you both!

BTW, Brian, I've been meaning to ask... do you ever sleep?

Protege said...

Amazing.
At first I though you wrote it. He is taking after his dad for sure (in talent and good looks as well;))
Have a lovely weekend with your gorgeous family,
xo

Mighty M said...
