Play comes to us from time to time:
Children seem to us to escape the confines of responsibility,
Chased and pure, untainted by life;
The freshness of play fires us.

The dream of recaptured truth haunts:
Calling us to abandon and escape the chains of adulthood,
Tarnished and damaged, purer in truth;
The freshness of truth plays us.

Living the conversations of play excites:
Freeing the ideas that build the future for our children,
Realistic and practical, creation in action;
The freshness of working makes us.
