Learn From Little Kids - Poem by Stanley Cooper

Adults can learn much from little kids
If we put aside our egos and our ids
Give the kids a chance_ pay close attention
Never look down with know-it-all condescension

Kids view the world with glowing wonder
They hear with awe the sound of lightning’s thunder
They recall for us those delightful innocent years
When we like them were wide-eyed and wet behind the ears

    Yes indeed. Having two young grandchildren now, I'm learning things all over again. Oh to be young again.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
