The hearth might be dirty
And there are toys on the floor
The child who swept the night before may, in fact
have been blind

But for a moment
there is sheer happiness

Because I adore these boys
who make things dirty
who leave toys on the floor
and who have not learned to sweep well

Today, I am counting my blessings!

They're so cute! And way too young to sweep well, lol!

Those are very many very handsome little boys. I love the pic where they are clustered around you! And it must be Matthew who lookes shockingly like John!
