Elan Vital

Let’s get out and play…

on a clear moonless day

or on a bright sunny night

something somewhere shines

brighter than a button can

clearer than a sparkling twig

the world service drowns

most of it out unless

it shuts itself down

after seven hours

Let’s go out and play…

now the grown ups have left home

to earn a living

extracting sunshine essence

from cucumber sandwiches

making love not war

proving change is good as rest

living someone’s dream

always willing to oblige

social working your widow
