Happy Children



Happy children are all-stars, curious
jugs of sunshine, their faces radiant,

their eyes metaphors of emptiness and
fullness perfectly contained, their
naiveté keeps us entertained,

they don’t think about anything too
long, peanut butter keeps them
energized, they have happy feet, elastic

like acrobats, they ride bareback on
wild stallions with wings, they train
smarter, not harder, slow and steady
gets them there,

they balance fun with rest, and they lie
on their backs and take pleasure in
moments of nothingness.
