When You Are Little Like You Poem by Clive Blake

When You Are Little Like You

Rating: 4.9


When you are little like you…
Everything is exciting,
Everything is brand new.

When you are little like you…
The world stretches out before you,
Creating a glorious view.

When you are little like you…
Everything seems possible,
There is nothing you cannot do.

When you are little like you…
Enjoy all of your childhood,
Don't be too eager to age,
Savour your life's story as it unfolds,
Don't rush towards the last page.

This is beautiful, Clive! A lovely tribute to a small boy with his life ahead of him. And why should we not try to make the other pages of that novel more childlike?

Absolutely wonderful poem, childhood does not have the scars of life's cynics knife, their is still a sense of play and wonder. Truly the last stanza is the best. Thank you for sharing.!
