Like a Child

I knew there was magic because rainbows and snowflakes and flowers were too good to be true.
I didn’t understand-
Why fireflies weren’t hot to the touch
Why I couldn’t have chocolate for lunch
When I was a child.

I didn’t understand
Why some friends were small
And most teachers were tall
When I was a child.

I did understand magic was real because I saw it every day.

“All grownups were once children- although few of them remember it.”

-Antoine de Saint Exupery
