I saw this the other day and just thought it was lovely and wanted to share it....

 

May we raise children

who love the unloved

things - the dandelion, the

worms and spiderlings.

Children who sense

the rose needs the thorn

 

& run into rainswept days

the same way they

turn towards the sun...

 

And when they're grown &

someone has to speak for those

who have no voice

 

may they draw upon that

wilder bond, those days of

tending tender things

 

and be the ones


life is better with a biscuit
