Joyous Laughter In The Park

Joyous Laughter In The Park

Here I am sitting while I'm all alone in the park and thinking
And by the way, the swaying of the swings and children playing
Off in the distance, I see many standing squirrels stand as if they're praying
I can imagine as if their stance were molded and often wonder.

Perhaps if mankind were timid and thought like perchance a squirrel.
Could us humans be as unkempt and fend for ourselves and drink much water
Or keep on swinging and twirling like the children as they all twirl
Their joyous laughter flies off into the distant breeze.

And cheerfully dances across the park and the summer park and singing.
While all the adults and children are standing near amongst the trees,
While the smaller children are all happily swinging and singing
So while I'm sitting here and thinking as if you were so near
Like a vision of a squirrel praying and gathering food and precociously eating
Now I'm thinking that if in a  moment it was praying just let it go!!
