Thomas - at 34 Months Old

He observes his ever-widening arc
The weeks go by, new routines start
He checks the rubbish bins at Church
One wonders why he makes the search...

Swift commands he can compute
His sense of trust is absolute
He learns that Daddy will be there
When he throws himself into the air.

Fireball of energy I've heard
Less babbling speech – more spoken word
A determined little Capricorn
Who takes his audience by storm.

As to talents – well, the jury's out
But Thomas knows what he's about
Assertive - confident with stuff
At nearly three, this guy is tough!
