Villanelle On Parenting

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started writing poetry on Hubpages back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.

Villanelle on Parenting

There are many sides to modern parent

whether parental or not go gently

just remember, no need to stay current.


One part survivalist, two parts labor

so forced to look at world differently

there are many sides to modern parent.


Don't listen to advice from your neighbor

some words should be whispered evidently

just remember no need to stay current.


When being present will return favor

and listen to your children constantly

there are many sides to modern parent.


Attention seems to affect behavior

when used along with positivity

just remember no need to stay current.


So soon you notice moments to savor

embrace the memories with family

there are many sides to modern parent

just remember no need to stay current.
