THE PIPER

pnce the piper came
and took all the children
and i was one of them

he led us down the meadow
said he would help us grow
faster than all our fathers
would let us so

once i looked back
and saw my childhood go
taking with her all the
candles i had blown
but i didn’t know then
what i had lost

and down the line
the piper dropped his pipe
and all was silence in the night
till he softly began to cry
and pronounced each one of us-
‘no longer child’

and once the piper went
and walked us down the isle
and handed us all to LIFE
