My daughter was counting the houses as we drove by last weekend. She told me that there was a green house. She meant the house in green. I asked them if they knew the other meaning of a green house. My son said “leprechaun house”. Wow! That wasn’t an answer I was expecting. How interesting! Kids are full of imagination. Anyway, I told them it is a house where we can grow greens and plants throughout the year even in cold weather. I have been writing some poems inspired by my kids. I thought that maybe I can compile them into a memoir, something that they can look back at the old days as they grow up.
A leprechaun house - A poem inspired by my kids
My daughter was counting the houses
as the houses went by.
She said there was a green house.
A house in green was what she implied.
I asked if they knew another meaning of the house.
“A leprechaun house”, my son replied.
Oh, that wasn’t an answer I was expecting.
An answer so fascinating.
Kids are full of imagination.
They are my source of inspiration.
