Wild Child

Ava was an energetic child, At times you could even call her wild. She'd climb the highest tree, Then like a chimpanzee, She would swing limb to limb as she smiled.
7/6/21 For Brian Strand's July 6 contest

- I would not call her "wild" ... an active child should climb like a monkey ... I always climbed the highest tree as a child ... today children sit too much ... not active at all. .. that is so sad, Kim :) - hugs // Anne-Lise :)

You are right, Anne-Lise, children should play outside and be active. Thank you for your comment!
