To be young again!

To be young again!
To jump on cracks, breaking Mama's back
To run from the shadows of a cloud on a spring day
To skip to my Lou, fall down from a ring of roses
Hopscotch, and jump-rope, and down down baby
To be Enlightened by curiosity
To examine the world through science, reason
To believe in God unrepentantly
To beg someone to kiss the boo-boo to make it better
To imagine the floor is lava
To defend to the death the notion that rain
on a sunny day is the Devil's wife weeping
To bathe in water and imagine the Titanic sinking
To clutch your teddy bear thinking they will save you
To be young again!
