This Magnificent Experience
The excited light
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
That shines from birth bright in a child...
Brings laughter and joy,
To those who watch first...
The connecting steps taken.
And the beginning of discovery,
Continues to glow...
Although with tears sometimes flowing,
To reflect upon the eyes of the guardian
Assigned to protect and keep
Each slow bloom of this peaking petal,
Revealed in inspirating wonder.
Reaching to broaden...
This magnificent experience.
Touching something about life unknown,
As it grows!
