Spring reflections

When there’s sunshine everywhere,

when the flowers blossom

and trees are in full bloom

and there is freshness in the air after a rainy afternoon

and the smell of baked cakes already fills the room

it means a child is there.

 

When the sky is dark and cloudy

and the sea is angered by the storms

and the winds blow so hard

from mountaintops to towns,

destroying things made with love

and darkness takes the place of light,

a child should not be there.

 

But where there’s a cuddle,

happiness and laughter, food and learning,

joy and a toy, peace and yearning

for things to improve,

and a smile changes the way

our world can move,

a child is there, a perfect pearl.
