Rhyme about a young boy who goes to the store to find a Mother's Day gift for his Mom. It would also work for Valentine's Day.

Dad, I need to do some shopping,

Now, before it gets too late.

Time’s a wastin’; let’s get hopping!

Hurry, Dad!  I just can’t wait!


Here’s the picture of the locket,

From the paper yesterday.

Better keep it in my pocket

For our shopping trip today.


Got my money.  Are you ready?

Let’s go, Dad!  It’s almost noon!

Here’s the ten from Uncle Freddy,

I’ve been saving since last June.


At the store, I knew I’d find it,

Next to lotions, soaps and stuff.

Those things smell, but I don’t mind it.

“Will ten dollars be enough?”


“Just enough,” the store clerk told us,

“For the gift you want to buy.”

In the bag, with what she sold us,

She put ribbons I could tie.


Back at home, I wrapped it neatly,

Taping every corner fold.

Inside, filled with love so sweetly,

Mom will find my heart of gold.
