I imagine the lucky child whose day
the baloons make him reach the sky
with singular joy a lifetime it shall stay;
I share the moment following the trail,
remembering my own many years ago.
Back to school in golden age is bliss
for all the lessons of yesteryears;
to keep abreast with change and past
and be young again in mind and heart.
Fear conquered early with love and care
builds courage to be tough;
who sets on the way to lasting peace
though land and sea be rough.
Jules Verne is right, in the deep monsters lurk;
they live in caves far from light and sight,
in a kingdom beyond man's reach and claim,
yet end up to his gustatory delight.
Three manequins in the garden at night
by a fountain and fiddling of cricket;
what a make-believe Hula life it makes
of a dreamland so beautiful but brief.
Travel to the world of Gulliver,
where once he was a pygmy,
now a giant among the dwarves,
to know the meaning of life.
