My pre-school music children

Just lists of names,
Addresses, numbers,
But I pore over them,
A careful gardener,
Checking my tender saplings,
Pulling some out, re-planting,
Feeding, watering.

Just pages of facts,
Computer print-out,
Yet I'm drawn to them.
A proud herdsman
Sizing up his stock,
Weighing up their strengths,
Believing in their potential.

Just numbers of children,
Groups and times,
But fascinating.
My homework
And my leisure reading,
Each name short hand
To a small personality
