A wonderful piece, Andrew. Reminds me of an old essay, "I want to be six again".....I want to go to MacDonald's and think it's a 4 star restaurant. I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make ripples with rocks. I want to think M&M's are better than money because you can eat them. I want to return to a simple time when all you knew were colors, addition tables and simple nursery rhymes, when you thought the world was fair,that everyone was honest and good, and where anything was possible.
Your poem captures that same flavor. Nice work.
