Wonderments and Such

Children should discover
the tales of Robin Hood, 
Hansel and Gretel,
Snow White

and many others of course,
but also,

they need to visit beaches
and get down on their knees to play

in the sand. 

For it is there they will 
begin to imagine

how many countless 
grains of sand 
cling to the edges 
of our world.

And thus, 
when they turn their
gaze to the night sky 

they will also
how many stars 
torch all corners 
of our Universe.

And so too, 
these story tellings,
these imaginings, 
these wonderments,

will help them 
peek inward

and examine themselves
with a much greater

sense of humility.
