A Child's Covenant

Learning ABC's and 123's
Praying to God on bended knees,
Trying to discern wrong from right,
Reining errant conscience's flight,
At the instant of telling a lie,
At once perceiving an angel's sigh,
Obeying love's dictate so sublime
By doing daily tasks ev'ry time,
(Drugs, hate) and all vices abhor,
(Hope, trust) and all values restore,
To rear, dear reader, children such as we,
O goodness me! It takes a family
