Child’s Play

Standard

simple joy of a child
revealed in smiling laughter
on a tiny face
sparkling eyes—
beauty, innocence, naiveté
cartwheels,
somersaults,
play-doh,
dandelions,
finger paints,
pig-tails
flying in the wind,
spinning round and round
merry-go-round
can fall down — can’t stay down
childlike trust,
faith too strong
stars in a midnight blue sky
shine, sparkle, shimmer
trying not to fade into the conformity
of an adult world
