Infancy (MP3)

infancy, n:

infancy, n:
        The period of our lives when, according to Wordsworth, "Heaven lies
about us."  The world begins lying about us pretty soon afterward.
                -- Ambrose Bierce

Do you fancy,
Do you sense,
The innocence?

Though not able to stand,
Living in the promised land,
Though not able to speak,
Representing the meek,
Does it sound wild...
Coming from something so mild?

Ahhh... through the eyes of a child,
You can see,
The way it's suppose to be,
Through the heart of a child,
You're in heaven,
Oblivious to the sin,
You live within.

Why leave this stage?
Why try to age?
It escapes me,
Why one wouldn't fancy,
