Wide-eyed Child

Wide-eyed Child

The child is he who watches
Keeping pebbles self-refined
Catching ants in a candy jar
Roll in roller coaster rides
Then set them free to seek 
refrain
He is the wide-eyed child

The child is she who stands on 
ledges
Tracing rivulets down side 
windows
Wading through fresh 
riverlands unknown
To wield liquid diamond dust
Beheld in her unblemished 
palm
She is the wide-eyed child

The child is he who listens
Crouched at the top of sun-
dried stairs
Head cocked to hear mellowed 
speech;
Whispers of a future that will 
never be
He is the wide-eyed child

The child is she who looks up
Traces clouds with stubby 
fingers
Grabs autumn leaves with a 
tiny hand
Tumbling through deep pools of 
maple
Then getting up to run again
She is the wide-eyed child
