A Child’s Mind - Poem by Marilyn Lott

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!

    The innocence of a child can be compared to that of the Lord. As such, if the grown-ups can imbibe it and make it a part of their nature, the world will definitely be a better place to live than it is today. Thanks a lot.
    And see the world as a child does
    How exciting life would be!

    Very nice as a poem on child's mind. One needs a very tender mind with an innocent heart to love nature and love children as well. You have composed a real masterpiece.
    Thanks. Subhas.

    Perhaps we should become a child to see the world anew. you are so right. we have lost that innocence which made us so happy. returning to childhood is a call now in the industrial world so that we may become more and more human. tony

    'Perhaps we too should open
    Our minds deliciously
    And see the world as a child does
    How exciting life would be! '

    Liked this stanza the most... I present some of my issues to my little friends & get the most unconventional & brilliant solutions. They are free from all the prejudices that we have formed while evolving!

    Beautiful..10
