The wide eyes of a child
Look upon a world reborn
See the glory of a rose
That never bears a thorn

The wide eyes of a child
Can invent a laughing moon
And the orange sun leaps high
Just as a floating toy balloon

He clearly sees
The flower and the bird
Whose thoughts he knows
Without needing any word

And any child can hear
Ringing laughter from a stream
Hear the music of the heart
To us a half-forgotten dream

In sleep he hears
The star’s distant song
Oh, may its wonder last
For his whole life long

If we had vision too
As we stumble on our ways
We could sometimes see our days
As through the eyes of a child
