  There is something really beautiful
about the wonder of a child

Everything is new and exciting
they let their imaginations run wild

In a constant quest for answers-
what ever they may be

Children see things
that we will never see

They question things
we have taken for granted

Like the sky, the trees, the grass
the beauty of our planet

If they could only teach us
to see things as they do

I'm sure we'd see a beauty of life
that we forgot we knew

Hear! Hear! Isn't that just the truth! Which is why the most important thing to teach a child is to keep asking those questions. Sometimes, we wish they wouldn't, but the overall effect is that it's real nice to see/hear it. Great poem.

This is so beautiful and flowing. It's very very true too.
