Even so young, life is so precious Of human nature there is but one thing on her mind As the two year old sits on a puddled pavement... Her tears withheld, from a saturated and stinky diaper She is not frightened of the dangers that loom ahead Thunder, lightning, fast rising floods that can swallow her whole Fallen trees, debris flying here, there, and everywhere Her only to save the worm (Photo 1) Free Verse or Rhyme Poetry in it's beauty poetry contest Sponsor Eve Roper 4-15-2019

Innocent wonder, everything and anything, a new adventure. If we only could be innocent again. This is such a meaningful verse. It sure evokes memories of life, way back when.

This is so sweet...and wise. It's a good thing babies don't have to worry about the future...that's our job.

G'day Charles … they say every river begins with a rain drop. I'd like to think this child is a breath of fresh air in this troubled world of rear and hate - thank you Charles - Lindsay

Love the immensity of the depth you took in this fine poem. The childlike innocent that reveals the bliss of one unaware of the darkness this world always holds. ' A fav..
