CHILDLIKE WONDER (c) By Polly Guerin
I search for distant lands and ponder
Can I become an inventor of dreams?
The creator of unlimited schemes?
Who makes the world a better place?
Accepting the beauty in every race
The spacious generosity of art
Transforms the view from the start
Keep that childlike sense of awe
A sensitive heart before you draw
Choose divine ideas to unify
Hear the heartbreak, a child’s cry
Reach out with expansive arms
Embrace the downtrodden in alarm
Prepare for a new way of thinking
Even through your heart is blinking
Find infinite solace in the art of being
Faithful, sensitive and seeking
Widen your vision and release doubt
Awaken to a new vision, live out loud!!!
