Small parrots, loud parrots, flocking declare-
“we are the owners of all that is air!”
If life could be measured only by sound,
then surely their claim
would be their’s all year round!
Small lizards, fast lizards sitting in sun.
lying in pleasure except when they run!
If life’s delight could tolerate heat,
then all of my memories
could be sampled still sweet!
Small child, bright child, swings unaware,
Singing so blissful without any care.
If all of my focus can dance oh so free,
then sparkles aplenty
will caress those like me!
