The knowledge of the young...

I am always amazed and impressed with the wisdom of children. I think I have been grounded more by one sentence a child has told me, than by many hours of adult conversation.

This is one of my favorite poems, Taken from Ten-Second Rainshowers: Poems by Young People compiled by: Sandford Lyne illustrated by: Virginia Halstead

That Cute Boy

That cute boy is driving me crazy,

he is so cute. He is the kind of boy

that a girl would like to worry about.

So what I'll do is just look at him

until he thinks I am full of beauty.
