friends take a break from recess
in the empty water table
while still waiting for some snow.
recess can be so exhausting.
“you never get tired unless you stop and take time for it.”
we came outside today
that it had
magically turned into spring.
when we said
coats weren’t really needed either
shrieks of delight
to peel off those coats
throw them down
after the long winter
to feel a taste of real freedom once again.
i need this wild life, this freedom. – zane grey
it took a small village of kinders to make a man.
they hiked through the deep snow.
they went in the playhouse to eat some snow and get pumped up about it.
they worked hard to push heavy loads almost a big as they were.
they built. and they built.
and they moved mountains.
and they crowned him with a prized possession.
and we celebrated with a song and a dance around the man they created.
and in the seventh hour, they rested.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world;
indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
