(for my grandson)
Freedom is the imagination of a child,
Feelings flowing freely, stories running wild!
Uninhibited by life’s accountancy,
By endless dwelling on profit and loss, not yet
Hemmed in by grey stone walls or iron fences,
By petty quarrels or narrow self-interest.
A child’s imagination soars over such mundanity!
A life still to be lived, will not be so constrained!
Cry “Freedom!” William. You hold the key!
Your inimitable imagination will set you free!
