Why are children so quiet now
There is no movement from the bough
No vital sounds that emanate
Amongst the guys that made us great ?
I see their faces all around
They do not smile or make much sound
There was a day we treasured all
And cringed whenever one did fall.
The times are changed as we can see
With values lost from infancy
Is there a way for some return
To speak and listen, read and learn ?
