The Thing That Amazes Me About Children


The thing that amazes me about children
They can vigorously disagree,
Engage in vibrant clash, in the end
They forget and forgive easily.
And so they laugh with sheer abandon
In gleeful innocent joy abounding
Not nagging each other on what was done
But with purity of heart, they go on living.
Perhaps that's the key to real Faith
Where one can trust and truly believe
That Truth stands forth and will not negate
The Hope of life, the Reason we live.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
