What Kids Like

Kids like
mud and noise
and democracy and experinemtation
and wheelbarrows and shovels
and hammocks and wagons
and drums and gongs
and magnets and mirrors
and sticks and timers
and clocks and stopwatches
and spontinaity and unafraid teachers
and visitors and singing
and animals and sand and water
and making things and coconuts and hammers
and cooking and weighing
and measuring and balancing
and feeling a hundred of something
and climbing trees
and walking in the rain
and play spaces they make for themselves
and umbrellas
and baking their own birthday cakes
and digging holes and being outdoors (without coats)
and soft things for quiet moments
and wondering
and teachers who like them.
