A child's eyes

A child's eyes

A Poem by Ashley Armstrong

A poem about the wonders of the world when you're a child

When you look through a child's eyes 
Every hill is a mountain
Every puddle is an ocean
Every cardboard box is a ship
And the floor is lava

When you look through a child's eyes
Blankets can become a fort
Fairy tales could be real
Your neighbor is a witch
And people have homes in the clouds

When you look through a child's eyes
The world is full of magic and wonder
Clouds are made of sugar
And the moon is Swiss cheese
The mountains are waffle cones
And the snow is vanilla ice cream

Wow......so beautiful.......

The simplicity of the poem matches the subject. The child's view is limited and yet extreme, bravo. jude

Ashley, I love this. The sentiment is so soft and beautiful. Children are open, honest little ones with unlimited imaginations. Beautiful write.

Thank you for the amazing poetry. I like to have the vision of a child. Everything is more beautiful and the world is a better place. The description gave life and purpose to the poem.
