Why God Made Little Boys and Girls
Why God Made Little Girls
God made the world with its towering
trees, majestic mountains and restless seas
Then paused and said,
"It needs one more thing...
Someone to laugh and dance and sing
to walk in the woods and gather flowers
to commune with nature in quiet hours."
So God made little girls
with laughing eyes and bouncing curls
with joyful hearts and infectious smiles
enchanting ways and feminine wiles.
And when He'd completed the task
He'd begun, He was pleased and proud
of the job He'd done.
For the world when seen through a little girl's eyes
greatly resembles Paradise
Why God Made Little Boys
God made a world out of his dreams,
of wondrous mountains, oceans and
streams, prairies and plains and wooded
land, then paused and thought...
"I need someone to stand on top of the
mountains, to conquer the seas, explore
the plains and climb the trees, someone
to start small and grow sturdy, strong
like a tree"
He created boys, full of spirit and fun,
to explore and conquer, to romp and run,
with dirty faces, banged up chins,
with courageous hearts and boyish grins.
When He had completed the task He'd begun,
He surely said, "That's a job well done."
