Three year old girl

I was gardening in my front yard

And a three year old girl

And her parents walked past.

Dad was pushing the girl’s bike

Mum was pushing the younger sibling in a stroller.

The girl stood up straight

And proudly proclaimed to me

As her helmet topped her outfit

That she was riding a two-wheeled bike.

I agreed that this was an excellent achievement.

We continued our exchange

In a similarly forthright and earnest fashion

For a few more moments.

What struck me

As I thanked her parents for this grace

Is that children grow and develop

Because of the love from their parents.

This couple’s love was on display, in spades,

And was a wonder to witness.
