CHILD OF DELIGHT

For you small child of delight
With your wild wayward cries
This world I would remake

So that there you can betake
Some honored place, I fight
For you small child of delight

If only one life save
And turn away from hate
This world I would remake

Where your large eyes round as suns
Lap at the seashore's sounds
For you small child of delight

I fiercely try to persuade,
And think how I may shake:
This world I would remake.

With words that beg new faith
Birth a miracle so bright
For you small child of delight.
This world I would remake

Panmelys, 1993
