Only With Wonder
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Please don't visit the meadow with a net,
Hoping to catch a butterfly, nor sit
Praying in a forest, hoping to get
Miraculous boons. That's the wrong spirit.
Visit wild places only with wonder,
Not just over the greatness of it all,
But as well over what may be under
A Leaf, no less wondrous for being small.
Leave desire behind when you are praying.
Then, a butterfly might well come to rest
Upon your shoulder, a boon for staying
Silent to admire a sparrow's new nest.
The beating of little, gossamer wings,
And a well-built nest, are such awesome things!
Wonder's a better companion than man,
Never raining on your parade. Her way
Is to take you to when it all began,
And to the threshold of the final day,
And even beyond, to Eternity!
Cerberus won't betray you with his bark,
If you set the imagination free.
Walk with Wonder, and nowhere is too dark
To wander, encountering what stirs there,
What runs so fast as to leave Time behind!
Why, you might feel Imagination's hair!
Wonder so much stretches the rigid mind!
Most wonderful is Wonder, as she shows
You what the enchanted, childlike heart knows!
