A Child's Expression


A look of awe
on a child's face,
Discover.

A look of surprise,
on a child's face
Delights her.

A look of fear,
on a child's face
Reassure her.

A look of pain
on a child's face
Soothe her.

A look of glee
on a child's face
Laugh with her.

Expressions of a child
Innocent and true,
Expressions of a child
Save the image in you.

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
