Age Four Comes Easily

I see age four
Standing in the long school hallway
By his lonesome

Exasperated preschool teacher three doors up, watching.
I know her hands are full with another four-year-old
Who is also a run away.

I introduce myself.
Ask who he is. He mumbles something I cannot hear.
His name badge tells me his name.

I ask where he is going. He says “My mama’s house.”
He takes my hand and walks with me.
Easy peasy.

It is my pleasure to help corral them and walk them back to their classroom.
