Learn With A Child - Poem by Anah Patton

Learn to laugh with a child aloud in glee
And the sunshine of the mind will free
All ugliness of care
You may have hiding there.
Learn to play with a child
With a game of make believe.
You will achieve a princely goal
That pays homage to the soul.
Learn to live with a child
With a game of make believe.
You will achieve a princely goal
That pays homage to the soul.
Learn to live with a child
Respectably, honorably,
And the years will come to show
An inner glow you possessed
Yet never guessed
Until the child had taught you so.
