Sense of Wonder

Sense of Wonder

Pitter-patter, pitter-patter—
Little footsteps approaching, scurry,
Around the corner it materialized:
A wild-eyed child, brisk and vigorous—
I called him Sense of Wonder.
An organism of adventure,
He hopped into the coin-operated car;
Slowly following behind
His parents appeared with a stroller.
The woman looked like you
And the man looked like me
And in the stroller an infant—
I called her Sense of Serenity—
Peacefully reclined where she was.
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter—
He did not care that his father had no coins
And did not object to the inactive vehicle.
He just spun the steering wheel
Left to right in its stationary transportation,
And the woman that resembled you
And the man that resembled me
Observed with their Sense of Serenity,
Whereupon their Sense of Wonder
Made his brisk and vigorous exit,
Still growling like an engine.
“It’s time to go home,”
His father noted candidly,
And off they strolled
In the direction they were headed.
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter—
And I still heard the sound,
Spinning the wheel of the car,
Beating and pumping the vessels—
Pitter-patter, pitter-patter.
