Aunts and uncles are like sunlit days:
Under their bright smiles children bloom.
No parents can remove, in just the ways
That aunts and uncles do, mid-morning gloom.
So when children need some extra love,
Aunts and uncles are like natural springs:
No tap need turn, nor word need passions move.
Deep down within the sparkling pleasure sings.
Until all parents are like Eden's garden:
Never less than innocent perfection,
Children well might learn, before they harden,
Lessons in disinterested affection.
Even as a smile lights a face,
So may aunts and uncles childhood grace.
