THE MAN

WITHIN THE BOY

By Josie Whitehead

Man Within the Boy (The)

He grasps the world with outstretched arms;
With sweet simplicity he charms.
     He shouts, he climbs, loves making noise,
     Yet fills his bed with cuddly toys.

He’s popular at nursery school,
He’s warm and kind, yet no-one’s fool -
     And both in anger and in joy,
     Displays the man within the boy.
