i still hear my toys

“you must keep your head about you,”
they keep reminding me ~
but the world is my canvas
and so inviting …
‘tis a shame to let it wilt,
a shame to pass up laughter and play,
when there is so much beauty,
such mysteries, such pleasure …
I hear them and then
turn my head away.
my toys are calling me instead,
balsam to my little ears,
welcoming my smile,
letting me be me
and enjoy childhood again.
