Innocence of Age

Now you are innocent:
  simple words
  loving care
  in your own world
But not the babe's innocence:
  inexperienced
  preparing for cycism
You've seen it all
  you've made mistakes
  you've done good things
Now your life-experience
  is an offering to us
  in your innocent way:
Tell a story
Sing a song
Whatever you want
  for the Now.
