Days when the Pirate Comes

{a fun idea for the sandbox, a visit from the Pirate}

On days when the pirate comes,
he leaves a treasure in the sand.
Our outlaw with the heart of gold.


This treasure is gifted to little boys
carried through their childhood.
Remember when we were pirates?



He arrives when the days are marked by dirty toes and pruney fingers.
Days when big brother whispers, I will always be here for you,
and little brothers hold him close, and learn to call for each other...
Lee-Lee, Beck-Beck, Eee-Tee.


During the hot days and carefree nights,
when the air is full of the spirit of Peter Pan, 
even their shadows smile,
from the sheer happy thought of it all.


On the day when the pirate comes.

If I Were Peter Pan, You Would Be My Happy Thought
