Silly boys, they laugh and they giggle,
Silly girls in their skirts they do wiggle.
The girls laugh and point at the giggling boys,
As they make funny noises playing with their toys.
The girls turn away when they see the boys gawk,
The boys chase the girls with the speed of a hawk.
The boys yell and taunt as the girls run away,
The girls round the schoolyard away from them they stay.
Huffing and puffing the boys give up chase,
The girls in their stocking feet ran away with the race.
The boys and the girls in playgrounds and yards,
Laughing and singing, life was not hard.
This innocence squandered to the aging of youth,
Maybe in children we adults can find our lost truth.
Wouldn’t this be such wonderful thing,
Removing from stress, it’s life zapping sting.
There’s much we can learn from our children at play,
Like how to have fun each and every day.
