The Mowo!



Is it already a year ago that Max was only two?
And approximating words was all the speaking he could do?
His passion for lawn-mowers was much in evidence then,
And he'd mow his daddy's back lawn again and again and again!
Back and forth and back and forth he'd trudge for quite a while
Ending the whole procedure with a wide and beaming smile!
Not only that but a 'thumbs-up' that made everybody laugh
And rush to get their cameras to take a photograph!
Is it already a year ago? The time has gone so fast!
And the memories of Max at two are already in the past.
He couldn't say 'whipper-snipper'* but he gestured with his hand;
A circlular cutting motion that all could understand.
I never caught it on camera and so you'll never see
The poetry in motion that so delighted me!
* A motor-driven circular blade for trimming edges.


It all happened before here:

What a cutie. I hope he keeps that enthusiasm for mowing for when he is a teenager. :-)

I wonder how he says 'whipper-snipper' today? !
An incident well recorded should his memory of it not remain. I would like to know what I was doing at two years old that is not recorded in the photo albums!
