A Child’s Mind

The world is wide with wonder
For everything is new
A child’s mind is like a sponge
Or like a flower sipping morning dew

I love to watch them question
Every single thing
You never know what is next
And what each day will bring

Perhaps we too should open
Our minds deliciously
And see the world as a child does
How exciting life would be!

It is always good to become a child and continue as a child. Beautiful poem.
children crave new information that's what they build their lives on Marilyn. enjoyed your poem Alan
The innocence of a child can be compared to that of the Lord. As such, if the grown-ups can imbibe it and make it a part of their nature, the world will definitely be a better place to live than it is today. Thanks a lot. And see the world as a child does How exciting life would be!
