 As Children Sleep 

 (Christina Strigas)

it is so peaceful
no jumping, no yelling, not a leap!
Up and down their shoulders move
sweet, beautiful faces
dreaming of some faraway places.

Soon they will open their eyes
and ask
am I leaving soon? Where is Mommy? Daddy?
we hug and smile
let us color, let us play
let us enjoy ourselves
until the end of the day.

Our job is not just any job
we must think so much
before we speak
for little minds are absorbing
everything we say and do
we have to remember who has eaten
slept and who has the flu.

We teach the first paths
that lead to learning and understanding
let us never forget
how important we are to each child
lying down to take their nap
good morning, with a smile
good evening, with a smile.
