À la Recherche d’une Qualité Perdue

Childhood days –
Endless summer
Over so soon.

School routine –
Facts and figures
In place of friends.

The shy boy
On the fringes –
Mock his strangeness.

Building Lego
Sat for hours –
Transcendent joy.

Exam success,
Afraid to speak –
Social failure.

Computer geek,
Obsessive interest –
The world forgotten.

Curious mind
Always learning –
Child-like wonder.

Naïveté
Jamais perdu –
Le retour de l’été.
