For a Child (Of Four)

A Poem by magic wall tree
"

a reflection on The Mysteries of the Horizon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Mysteries_of_the_Horizon.jpg

Listen

Child!

stop your thoughts

and run

to the stream.

There you will find

a guide, fox.

She will help

you to

find the answer

to the riddle.

I leave you

with this:

four paths

in four levels can

begin

in as

many as

four places

or as

few

as

two.

Some of the formatting is completely lost on the text, because I can't do everything I want on this simple editor. One day, I'm going to buy Photoshop for my poetry.
