I loved this poem I read in a magazine as it was so true!  Boys are such wonderful creatures with lots of energy, but I am so thankful for them! There is no author listed though!!

From Keepers At Home magazine Spring Issue 2009

Author unknown-

Boys at Our Place
When you hear a fearful racket
Like a miniature cyclone
With some sounds so strange that surely
Their like was never known
While a Mother listens calmly
Even with a smiling face
You may know it’s nothing serious
There are boys about the place

When there is a famine in the cupboard
And the milk pail soon runs dry
And we can’t keep bread or cookies
No matter how we try
when we vainly seek for apples
That have gone and left no trace
Hard times are  not the trouble
There are boys about the place

When there’s sawdust on the carpet
And some shavings on the bed
When the rugs are tossed in corners
And some chairs stand on their heads
While, if a tool we’re needing, we
All around the house must race
We can know they’re making something
Those boys about the place

When the house is full of sunshine
On the darkest kind of day
And we have to smile at seeing
Some creative Boyish play
And with eyes so bright and loving
Oft are raised to meet my face
My heart pleads softly"O, God bless him"
Bless those boys about the place
