By Mary E. Adair

(Reprint from within Editor's Corner April 2000.)

Ah, that we could protect our young
From all things we think bad...
And if we did, what all they'd miss...
Some things for sure they'd wish they'd had.
But we, in our wisdom, would stifle them, I fear,
And never let others come too near...
And hold them so tightly,
their Beings would sear,
And shrivel and die, inside and out...
If we were in control of all they're "about."

(c)2000 Mary E. Adair
