He just turned five years old today

Always mischievous and bold

He put a spider in sister’s potty chair

That boy of five years old.

 

His days were filled with naughty pranks

Welcomed nights—no longer, I’m told

For if he couldn't sleep—no one could

That boy of five years old.

 

One day I'm told he kicked the dog

His face was angry and cold

He got a terrible whipping that day

That boy of five years old.

 

He's now a poet/historian

And what a site to behold

He grew up to be a wonderful man

That boy of five years old.

 

Dedicated To My Father Glen L. Paulich
