CHILDHOOD

When you are in it,
you think it'll never,
ever come to an end.
How could its magic
simply vanish, gone
with relentless time?
Because time itself is
but illusion to a child,
something that moves
so slowly you cannot 
understand why the 
grownups keep on 
and on about wasting
time, and how it flies!

Nonsense! you say,
because you know
time is a glacier--
just look how long 
before a birthday 
or Christmas comes,
when days are weeks 
and weeks are months.

And in your child-heart
you believe you will
always remain young
and free of spirit, for
the big people live in 
a hard little world
while you are ruler
of an entire universe.
