Do you see through the eyes of a child, Has the magic gone, Or are you still beguiled, Do you see the wonder in a green field, Yellow buttercups, purple clover, dandelions that yield, Do you run with the wind in your hair, With all the time in the world, with no worries or care, Do you think of a distant memory, Hear a song with a certain melody, Do you look up at the sunshine, On a beautiful day, To see a bee buzz by, going their way to make honey, Or a beautiful Red Admiral butterfly, Or a dragonfly change directions, mid-air in the sky As they twist their wings, and hover around In six directions over water or ground Do you smell a certain smell A forest with a carpet of bluebell Is there a mystery in life you cannot tell.
