Sonnet XL

Some things kids need in order to have fun:
Each other – friends – and lots of space to run.
Then there’s food and candy (not too much),
Some watchful supervision and some games.

I think that children’s play relieves our stress,
So innocent and conveying happiness.
It seems they melt away the worries that we have;
Concern in life, and for their safety too.

Young children leave our cares behind
And many entertainments they will find.
Despite our chiding, nagging, worrying,
They’ll soon go on and leave our fears to us.

It seems, as siblings, parents, caregivers,
Our worries will be lost as futile thoughts.

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.

- Emily Dickinson
