Ups and downs, hills and dales
Life's a journey – wind in sails
Small boys make progress at great speed
The daily challenge is a need!
Wee Thomas, edging on to four,
Loves climbing – so much to explore
On sunny days why stay inside
When you can zoom down on a slide?
Steep steps beckon – off you go
Hold on tight and take it slow
A moment later you're on top
Survey the scene then down you drop.
The confidence of Thomas grows
His lust for freedom clearly shows
Amazing what these playgrounds teach
Brand new summits within reach!
