I’ve always understood the young child to be my teacher.
She sees clearly, tells the truth, and her simple understandings have not yet been muddied with unnecessary complexities.
With children you will always find an innate sense of fair play,
and of full-bodied expression.
Children can be very thoughtful.
I would never think to give the dog a napkin, or wonder if a mouse has a comfortable place to live.
I know we’ve almost all forgotten that hands are to make things,
and that making pretty little piles is a much better use for stones than throwing,
and that most of all, every person should have the chance to yell
“doodleedoodleedoo”, whilst sliding in the mud.
Happy Children’s Day!
