Faces of Children Looking Out

Inside this shadow of a room

live the eyes of a child

looking out through curtains

at a just discovered world

 

Inside this bearded pensioner

this housewife dusting

this wrinkled grandmother

in her rocker

 

These trudging, nameless

brown or yellow farmers

windswept salt encrusted sailors

miners breathing coal dust

 

all shadowy children

 

These children, nameless, waiting

split into a million futures

looking out through curtains

the planet whirling by outside

 

Its face

your face

my face

reflected on the misty window pane
