Little Boy

May I remember,
  as you run wild,
And show me the madness
  bound up in a child,
That such times of chaos,
  roughness and noise
Will always be present
  in lives of small boys,
But when our God made you,
  he knew that the trick
Was to put in the heart
  of small boy wielding stick
A place of soft sweetness,
  of kindness and joy,
And this is the truth
at the heart of a boy.

(from Zoe Hurtado to her fantastic boy Owen)
