Mirrors of Childhood

Dr Abe V Rotor
Living with Nature School on Blog
Paaralang Bayan sa Himpapawid (People's School on Air) with Ms Melly C Tenorio
738 DZRB 8 to 9 evening class, Monday to Friday

Ilang-ilang and camia for pendant,
sampaguita for the lei;
string of abaca, by tender hands hold,
craft of joy more than the pay.  

Make-believe prison in a banana grove they play,
they who  are innocent, who are free;
and we who've known life's evil that we must pay;
we grown ups, look at them with envy.

There's no traffic jam, it's only in their mind,
with neither time nor distance to gain;
pity to us, who years before, were like them;
when ideals rose, then died in vain. 

After the passengers are gone,
this li’l one takes the last round;
imagine this li’l helping hand
bring respite and fun. ~
