The miracle of children's imagination always amazes me. They don't see the world through guilded eyes. They are pure in all they do and all they see. That's why today I want to share some poetry and a few things that have been written and said by children. If only we could see the world though their eyes. The following is two poems by a young girl named Samantha Weil. Her dad is a writer, so it doesn't surprise me that her poems would be this good. I hope you enjoy them.
Rushing, driving, shoving
Sky scrapers, trains, dogs, pigs
Farming, slowly moving, horse riding
I hear people screaming and shouting at the beach.
I hear sand swifting in the air.
I see pople on the diving board at the pool.
I see water parks all around me.
I smell chlorine in the pool and saltwater on the beach.
I smell BBQ food burning.
I taste juicy, hot ribs and juicy fried chicken.
I taste hot brown rice with beans.
I feel the waves splashing over my head
and the sun heating my back.
I feel the grass brushingy feet.
Both poems were written by a child named Samantha Weil.
Her child like observations paints a picture for all adults. She sees more than most of us.
I also received an email that simply asked a question, "What is love." The children that were asked were between the ages 4 and 8. Some of the answers blew me away. This one is my favorite.
'When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different.
You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.'
Billy - age 4
