Times change. Children have the right to be children.


As a child, I had so much time for dreaming.

What if the waves froze? Could we walk to Hawaii?

Do ants talk to each other as they forage in the grass?

 

Look at the clouds! I see Pegasus!

Let’s build a sand castle with four tunnels,

And if it collapses, we’ll do it again.

 

Do we allow the little ones to dream today?

Are they scheduled and shuttled and tied down in car seats?

Is it lessons here and play dates there and

“Don’t touch that, it’s dirty?”

 

Our parents let us live in our child’s world,

And though we have issues, who doesn’t?

Exercise and imagination were never the problem.

Our parents let us live in our child’s world

They surely did, and very sadly, many children today don't seem to be allowed to.

No doubt times have changed but a dreamer will always dream
Reviewed by Patrick Granfors 7/21/2011
I used to build mud dams and play with fire crackers and have dirt clod wars with the neighborhood kids and catch snakes and build tree houses from stray wood. We even built a fort in the rafters of the garage. Dad put a stop to that when we dropped a hammer on one of his cars. Patrick

I am happy to say that I still have a child's mind, which I am reminded of continually.

Cheers,
Dan
