untitled by Regina C J Green

peace
enters
another
child's
ear

through long-winding roads
once the path worn round
the old broken elm
and standing there
contemplating the lapsed sturdiness
of it all

you became the roaming spider and
the hungry locust
the tall valiant grass and
the happy cattail
and every mirrored child
knew his way
from home to there
and back again

I love the idea of peace entering another child's ear--a nice vision to spread.
