Elijah Lie

This is a poem written entirely by seven-year-old Naomi to her seven-week-old baby brother. She wrote this for journal yesterday.

Elijah's Poem

Elijah lie
Don't you cry
You don't need to yelp for help
Be happy, and not sappy
Be glad, not sad

Mama's home
So do be calm
It's okay
Mama's on the way
Don't keep awake to play
This whole long day

Please take a nap
And don't play with that little flap
Remember don't be sappy
But be very happy
