“To Be A Child Again” Poem

To Be a Child Again

By Ashley O’Hare

When the sun bleeds through the window

And the heat bakes your skin,

Let it take you back in time

And be a child again.

Go, run out to the yard.

Don’t cage yourself in shoes—

Frolic through blades of grass

And let nature make you brand new.

Even if the clouds threaten rain,

Keep on with the show.

A little water never hurt anyone—

It just helped them grow.
