Child on a train

Child on a train

In the infant’s eyes
            I see the glint
of innate curiosity
            sitting in his pushchair
his head turning
            this way and that
taking it all in
though as yet
            without language

Arms stretched out
            fingers spread
his attention alternating
            between his parent
and the world
            thinking : mother
what have you
            got me into ?
