Play as Poetry


As it Should Be

Cool mud between toes,

skinned knees and elbows.

Play’s crowning glories earned.


Today’s rocket ship,

tomorrow’s castle and slide.

Genius unleashed through cardboard.


Running, spinning, laughing.

Inside voices long forgotten.

Mother Nature’s satisfied smile.


Rosy cheeks and grass stains,

unbridled joy and warmth.

Childhood without spoil or limits.

- Bethe Almeras, The Grass Stain Guru
