Mommy, May I?

by Trish Cozart

A little boy once said to me,
“Mommy, may I pet that bee?”
“No,” said I, “ or you’ll have a sting.”
“Yes,” said he….”but I’ll have felt the wing!”

A little boy once said to me
“Mommy, may I climb that tree?”
“No,” said I, “you might fall down.”
“Yes,” said he, “but I’ll have seen the town!”

A little boy once said to me,
“Mommy, may I sail the sea?”
“No,” said I, “Your boat might fail.”
“Yes,” said he, “but I’ll have seen a whale!”

“Mommy,” said that little boy
“How will I ever know life’s joy?”
Said I, “You won’t as an observer.
So go ahead, son,…but bring your life preserver!”
