Three boys march on in front of us;
With each of them I’ve been in love.
They’re off limits for various and sundry qualifications.

And talked about our childhoods
She told us tests would do no good:
We are what we are.
The rocks, they sparkled with heaven’s dust,
And here away from the smog and rust,
I knew that it was in god I trust-
I’m following stars.

She handed me a paper bag,
‘twas full of pieces of the past
To tuck away inside my head, along with every book I’ve read.

Maybe one day I will be wise;
As for now, I’ve just got big eyes,
A mouth agape, as I realize each day brings with it a surprise.
