“In the face of an overpowering mystery, you don’t dare disobey”
The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Please sir, don’t poison the stars
with your unfaith in wishes.
They are the lamp to light the way
to where the clever flower blooms
in ephemeral winks and forget me not smiles.
I am sorry to say it is a place
where most grown-ups aren’t welcome
because they bring a drought of non-imagination.
If you promise to not grumble, stumble or doubt,
I will take you to see the clever flower blossom
when the wind whispers it carries one of your wishes.
