A little more than halfway through the piece, she shares a poem he wrote when he was ten. Entitled The Reading Boy, it begins with the line, "There once was a boy who was good..." It will be appreciated by voracious readers of all ages.
Click here and scroll halfway down the page to read the poem. I didn't want to reprint the poem here without permission.
