I am happy playing in the stream so clear,
safe from the torrent of water hurtling down that fills parents with fear.
Sometimes I make a little bridge with stones to try and stop the flow.
But the water rushes on without delay.
I wonder where will it go.
The water is deliciously cool.
It's so refreshing on a hot summer's day.
I see other children stepping from stone to stone.
Trying not to slip, they carefully make their way.
It's a delicate balancing act on their own.
I look at coloured pebbles in the stream.
Some seem to have a magical gleam.
I take one up curiously.
A glint of silver sparkles in the sun.
Could there be treasure here?
I cannot tell but this place is simply ace.
I always have fun.
