A Child's Voice


We adults trudge through our care-worn days
Lives lived in a frenzied and anxious haze
But in a moment, in life we again rejoice
All we need is to hear a child's voice

Innocence and joy mingled in a high-pitched note
The enemies of tiredness and sorrow are smote
May we forever continue to be beguiled
By the angelic voice of a child

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
