My Boy Wonder


Between tall shelves
Down the aisles you go
Eyes full of wonder
Pure curiosity  flows


Tales of dragons and kings
Super heroes' adventures
Poems and rhymes
And strange, scary creatures


All come to life
In your rich and eager mind
To rules and oppressive limits
Your playful spirit remains blind


How I envy this freedom
This joy of deep acceptance
And how grateful my being 
For receiving such sustenance 


You too are such a wonder
A magical tale I'll always behold
Be not afraid to live the mysteries
Allow your greatness to unfold.
