Example Poem:
Finish in Glee
 
Rise up- find the child within
She can play without chagrin.
She has shared you long with me
Let her play with us begin.
Let my child within be free
to reflect with company,
aged but still embracing schemes.
Anxious now for what we’ll see.
Serious jobs done now it seems.
Let’s now play with mind’s own dreams.
We can be silly now and enjoy
watching views of life’s extremes.
Hidden by convention’s din
shines undimmed to child within.
