Play – comes calling, tickling hearts.
The joy that bubbles seems so free.
It leaps upon you like a fountain
spraying incandescence far and wide.
Then there’s quiet moment’s eddy,
full of pleasure warm and kind,
contemplating what will next be,
as sweet imagination’s glory shines.
Soon some lightening flashes forward,
action figures spring to life.
Heroes rise and then they splatter
in the shadows of adult life.
Grief contends with evil’s power,
twisting pain and bringing fear,
’til the gallant rise victorious,
in the war to end all strife.
Play is simply destiny calling!
It empowers hope to thrive.
When you see a child not playing,
something deep within has died.
So one role in life’s adventure,
is to stimulate more play!
When we live in child’s blessing,
we breathe life into each day.
