On wobbly legs I stood and walked
at least a million miles.
Stood and walked a million miles
til they wobbled no more.
With tiny fingers I reached and touched
at least a million things.
Reached and touched a million things
til they reached no more.
Soft and loud I sputtered and talked
at least a million words.
Sputtered and talked a million words
til I could speak no more.
Twitching nostrils smelling and sneezing
at least a million smells.
Smelling and sneezing a million smells
til it could smell no more.
Bright green eyes saw and saved
at least a million sights.
Saw and saved a million sights
til they could see no more.
