Is it funny

Would it be strange
To see a young girl
Go dancing around
the market place
Or climb trees by the highway
Or flick an orange from a cart
Or sing to the silent nightingale
Or smile at the nodding flowers
Or rush to hug you
When you’d rather think
a casual Hullo! would do
Or talk to the stars
and splash in the puddles
made by rain

Would it be strange
if she never grew up
and chose to remain the same.
