Running through a meadow green,
On a summer day,
I thought I saw a little child,
Just beginning play.
But as I looked again, I saw
a bright and shining gem,
A ray of light from the sun,
Seemed to encircle him.
A moonbeam caught in his hair,
Made it shine so bright.
Stars were used for his little
eyes, so he could see the
A little gem needs guidance,
As he continues play,
A gentle voice, a loving smile,
Will help him on his way.

Nice poem, I'd correct some spelling errors though--notably "thru"..it is spelled "through"
