Young minds see options like sand on a beach.
Decisions born of freedom,
The keys to doors leading
To mysterious worlds made from boxes and sheet.
'Lets pretend' a password to scabby knees you find
boundaries unfenced, beckon brave adventurers.
Grandad's old hat now that of Captain Black Beard.
Thrills beyond belief to hide or to spy,
achieve weightlessness on a swing or climb to high.
Brothers and sisters accomplices able
to find treasure buried under the dining room table.
Such are the delights of a childhood;
who could imagine anything better.
