A Trace Of A Child

Look! Look! I see a tree!
Laden with fruit so ripe
With low boughs, heavy
Let’s climb, you and me!

What tree?…. Oh!
So what is it to me?
You’re being silly
There’s so much work, see?

Oh but look, just look at it!
Even the wind is tempted
Look as it sways the branch
Look how it’s excited

It’s a tree, there’s fruit,
What’s so grand in that?
I’ll buy some later
This report just has to go out

The tree blossoms but once a year
Reports will go out all year
Come! Come with me!
Let’s climb it, you and me!

You’re a child yet,
What would you know?
Of how pressing this job is,
You’ve nary a clue

You’re me, I’m you
I’m the child still within
What I want, you do
Come let’s climb, me and you…
