Tuckered Out Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


YOU don't weigh more than thirty poundsA
Your legs are little plump and fatB
And yet you patter on your roundsA
The whole day long within our flatB
Yes ceaselessly you come and goC
In search of things you want to seeD
You're only two years old but ohC
You walk the strength right out of meD
A dozen times a day or moreE
You gayly lead me up the stairsF
Then back to try the kitchen doorE
Then round about the parlor chairsF
You come and take me by the handG
And splendidly you march awayH
Until by night I scarce can standG
While you are fresh and keen for playH
You know not what it is to tireI
You never seem to care for restJ
You seem to have but one desireI
And that's to go 'till you're undressedJ
And this tonight I'll say to youK
As you are tugging at my kneeD
That it is all that I can doK
To keep the pace you set for meD
Oh little chap with tireless stepL
Oh little laughing chap of twoK
I somehow wish I had your 'pep'L
And could keep up as well as youK
I wish I had what you possessM
The strength to romp and play and runN
Yet every Sunday I confessM
I'm tuckered out when night comes onO
