Magic Unveiled - Poem by Nika McGuin

Children
still know the secret spell
the one that unlocks happiness with ease
if we listen,
they'll gladly hand over the key

Dogs
can still decipher nature's call
watch closely, & follow the paw prints
mother nature will accept you again
with open arms!

[I guess cats know it too
but don't expect them to show you]

Nonetheless,
magic doesn't just come to you
you must listen.....watch
& it will, unveil itself

    This is a charming lyric of moral advice which is simplicity itself. It challenges our vanity. Here's one disgruntled reader: No way! I've got my college degree. I work with super computers. I earn $89,000 per half year. You expect me to follow the lead of kids, dogs and mother nature? I'm outta here. So it goes... I'm staying, as long as it's kids and dogs, but no cats.I want to receive the key from a child. This is natural magic, and cannot be distorted or misused like other forms. (Report) Reply

    This is a simple lyric with a universal message, which is simplicity itself. It's about being in accord with nature, and the lesson challenges our vanity (I admit, I'm guilty) - I'm supposed to follow the lead of kids, dogs and mother nature? No way! I've got my college degree, I work in cybernetics, I earn $89,000 per half year. I'm supposed to watch a dog, and take a key from a child! No way! (I've been re-reading WALDEN and Thoreau would applaud this poem. On one of the early pages, he gives three pieces of advice (quote) : SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY, SIMPLIFY.)
    I like the touch of humor involving the cat's independent ways.
