    I Saw A Child

    by John Anthony Davies

    I saw a child who couldn't walk,

    sit on a horse, laugh and talk.
    Then ride it through a field of daisies
    and yet he could not walk unaided.

    I saw a child, no legs below,
    sit on a horse, and make it go
    through woods of green
    and places he had never been
    to sit and stare,
    except from a chair.

    I saw a child who could only crawl
    mount a horse and sit up tall
    Put it through degrees of paces
    and laugh at the wonder in our faces

    I saw a child born into strife,
    Take up and hold the reins of life
    and that same child was heard to say,
    Thank God for showing me the way.
  2. Wow! I think lots of us were that child! Born in strife.
