It’s Child’s Play

Children will play
With rattles, blocks, and fluffy bears;
They’ll spend the day
With balls and dolls and glamour wear.

Children will play,
On teams, with dreams and make-believe;
And each new way
Develops, someday, what they’ll achieve.

So, cowboy games,
And playing house and cars and planes,
With made up names,
Imagination grows and gains.

Then girl or boy,
In rollicking sport or neat array,
As they enjoy,
In their life’s work, may some day say,
“It’s child’s play.”
