Lights In Their Eyes

.

Teachers know. The light

bulb is low watt but the turn

up switch sends beams

directly into the heart.

.

Five year olds are the better

for bliss pourings-out. No clue

to what is about to happen

later at twelve and twenty,

fifty and eighty, just untainted

wonder.

.

At that age, no guile, no pretense,

just raw undisturbed human. We

look down, but metaphorically,

we should look up.
