Texas Child.

At last, my LO i finished last week.
I found this poem on the web one day and thought it was very apt for Sam, being a little Texan boy. Although we no longer live there, Texas is still very much spoke about and i feel it's important for Sam to understand where he was born and grew up for a little while before returning back to the UK.

I am not entirely happy with the final outcome, more so with the title - once i find the right size and font i will change it and hopefully the page will come together better. Love the colours of the paper - new line from October Afternoon and the picture of Sam is a few minutes after he was born.

Poem: Texas Child.

Blessed is the child who is Texan born,

Where the wind blows free and the sunshine warms;

Where children grow up to be honest and true,

To believe in themselves and in what they do.

Dew Sprinkled mornings, star studded nights,

Fields strewn with wild flowers, big city lights,

Sand dollar beaches, and hill country streams,

Wild western vista's as wide as your dreams.

It's all apart of the state you call home,

And apart of your heart, wherever you roam.

Tall tales 'round the campfire,

Or on Grandma's knee,

Rich with legends and hero's, a proud history

So dear Texas child, just reveal in glory -

Some day you'll write your own Texas story!

Thought this poem was beautiful and perfect for our very own Texan Child! Hope your all having a lovely weekend - and i will be back with a new little project very soon

Take care
