A Wishing Pond

A wishing pond

A pond you wish on

A pond full of wishes

A wish is to a pond as stars are to the dark, night sky

One’s wish is full of beauty

Another full of fear

And that one kid who brings a tear

The stream on his/her cheek, salty and wet

One after another, till the specialty of a laugh

A laugh that the child remembers

The laugh of a foolish cry

That laugh of a foolish cry at the wishing pond

The pond that seeks beauty, wishes, and fear

Not any pond, a special wishing pond

A wishing pond that is a star in the dark, night sky
