The Untold Secrets of Diamonds: As Told by a Grandmother Who Adore Robert Frost

The Untold Secrets of Diamonds
(As told by a grandmother who adore Robert Frost)

Listen to the arts of kids, 
     their hands when tied have wings
be mindful of pledge not done,
     could command your heart like kings.


The eyes of the young hidden,
     make the wildest most upturned
innocent minds forbidden,
     cause white angels ill turn.

Abridge their minded rights,
     fawns could thwart their sentinels
your eyes will not see delight,
     if cubs come out as rebels.

Love your kids like diamonds,
     shining the light of your home
unlike the blue vagabonds,
     they're sweeter than honeycombs.

Treasure the young with silver,
     swallow evil deeds untamed
not letting heads bewilder,
     avoids the stormy shame.

Raise your fruit with heart and soul,
     & polish like refined gem
push their minds limit unroll,
     watch them rise as greatest men.

Keep not their focus adrift,
     daily fishing thoughts since birth
when you dig their inborn gifts,
     they salute your life on Earth.

Like the outburst of joy in a woman's face when her fiancee presented her a diamond engagement ring, there comes also this unexplainable emotion from parents when their child is born. Kids are happiness in our homes.

They are truly grandparents' pride. They make the dim lights shine brighter and give colors to the dull corners of our lives. Witness their equivalent exchange of love with their parents, grandparents and rest of the family. The love and care we show them are reciprocated, if not now, it will be in due time.
