The Kind of Child

Who reads too much

Who observes adults

Who notes down everything she sees

Especially in the long summer holidays

Lives in stories, in imagination

Watches ants at work

Listens to music all day

Browses in the record store, the library

Wears home-made clothes

Paints her face like a Geisha

Too aware, always aware

Suspicious, inquisitive

Shy artist

Prefers galleries to hills

Loves water but fears it

Previous lives and spirits visit her

Likes your company

For a day

Unless you know how to play

Then you can stay
