Come, I will show you


"be happy, be free, for the world is beautiful today,"

cries the child

and all the other children

(who have forgotten they are children)

look up with weary eyes

at this one who dares express this unbound joy

the child takes no notice

but continues the gentle dance

and happy song

saying only "the world is singing, allow yourselves to hear!

play, play my friends

for mushrooms can sing, and water can dance, didn't you know?"

and laughed as if that explained everything

And indeed it does

and surely must,

for the others looked upon this child now

watching the dancing and playing

and they took a step forward

and asked this child how to join the game

And the child took their hands one by one,

and said "come, I will show you".
