That tender heart shook, that specky brain vibrated wild, that puny body vaulted in unexplained, the child did not "know", what to listen and what to mean, as they took him down, for the first time ever, into the structure of life, and loaded him and his "free"self, with some tasks he did not like, and yet knew were mighty well done, he could have collapsed, just like larvae on water edge, presto !-wings he grew just like butterflies, and flew he did to adulthood, where he loads and leads his brood, just like his poor folks did.
