Childhood wonder in adulthood

brings the paths together
or at least stretches it away
from Life’s demanding chains

at the possibilities
that run through dreams
instead of on the earth

for a hint of what
five-year-old me asked for
and saying yes

  1. Wordsworth remarks that “shades of the prison house begin to close around the growing boy”, by which I think he meant that as we grow towards adulthood we start to lose the sense of childhood wonder you capture so well in your poem. Best wishes. Kevin
