Marilyn Lott Poems
A Child’s Mind
The world is wide with wonder
For everything is new
A child’s mind is like a sponge
Or like a flower sipping morning dew
I love to watch them question
Every single thing
You never know what is next
And what each day will bring
Perhaps we too should open
Our minds deliciously
And see the world as a child does
How exciting life would be!
I think porches are so fascinating
They come in every size
You can sit upon the porch and read
Become older, yes, but wise.
I love driving across the country
See porches so different everywhere
Some are small with a tiny roof
There isn't much room to spare.
