Little boys lie down to wander

by jimowensjr

Little boys lie down,

to wander.

Unchained by worldly care,

to dream dreams of some grand adventure.

Storming castles high

to save the maiden fair.

On high sea and into the valley dark;

To cross the wind driven sands;

to trek through jungles wet with wonder.

Taming great beasts;

and into the dragon’s lair,

to suck the dripping sweet nectar from life’s ripest fruit.

Little boys lie down

to wander.

Just as their father’s do.
