A delightful view of childhood, in verse.
If God could choose a special age
at which he'd like to be,
I think he'd like to be a child,
a little child like me.
He'd understand my feelings
when I come into His house,
and not expect me to behave
Just like a little mouse.
He knows that I am happiest
when I can make a noise,
and share my happy little thoughts
with other girls and boys.
And though I do not know the words
to pray or even sing,
the patter of my little feet
to Him I gladly bring.
So if sometimes I might offend,
or dare I say, appal,
I know He'd rather have my noise
than not have me at all.
