I saw a child.... 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.
