The poem to be published in my school yearbook!

What Do You See?

Kelantan kites in deep blue skies
Dips and soars and higher he flies,
With little hands tight on the strings
Dreaming of many things.
Little child what do you see?

Purple ribbons and baby dolls,
Castles and ponies and waterfalls,
With shining eyes on a busy bee
And princesses drinking tea.
Little child what do you see?

Children laugh and children cry,
Imagine what it's like to fly,
Touch the clouds, surpass the sun
Then sit amongst stars when the day is done.
Little child what do you see?

A world without pain or sadness or fear,
A world where you keep all that you hold dear,
Where nothing is lost to unrelenting time
And you never fall further than you've climbed.
Little child what do you see?

I want to see
Green fields and sunshine,
Flowers on ever-climbing vines,
The past is gone, the future, to be
Step forth into a land of the free.
Shall we?

What you prove hear , is that children are far wiser. Than they become later in life. I greatly admire thse who write poetry in a language not their own. Wonderful work to read , write on as you do , write as free as a bird . Never caged by writing this way or that way as told you must , right on write on.

A poem of childhood innocence and your fourth and fifth stanzas are what we all would like. The repetition worked well and the final line rounded it off .
