Tulips.

By Claudia TenElshof

age 10. April 30,2014

When the leaves are coming And the buds are popping A tulip is not noticed A tulip is not noticed But when adulthood shakes her dress And childhood is shed Then the tulip is noticed Then the tulip is noticed We are like the tulip Unimportant in childhood When we have not yet grown When we have not yet grown But when we are grown And have much to offer, Much to show Much to show Then we are important We are like the tulip

(wrote poem & gave to me moments before retiring to bed)..” You are important, valuable and have a voice right now Claudia. Enjoy where you are, being 10. You are where you are supposed to be , ten..enjoy every stage and season Claudia, don’t rush to grow up..” –“Ok mom.”
