Attention parents of boys: January’s poems, published in Literary Mama today, feature stages of raising sons, from Julie Stotz-Ghosh showing her infant his First Snow to Rebecca Lanning speaking To My Son on the Morning of his Scholastic Aptitude Test.
From toy trains to Bottlecaps, the relationship mothers share with sons as they grow into men is a challenge and a joy.
And if you have daughters, please enjoy these poems as well as last month’s poems focusing on raising strong girls!
From Rebekah Denison Hewitt’s “Pantoum of Divided Attention“:
To understand what a door is,
to understand that something opens,
to see the line of light behind it,
pull and go through.
