’When the child was a child

It walked with its arms swinging.

It wanted the stream to be a river

the river a torrent

and this puddle to be the sea.


When the child was a child

It didn’t know it was a child.

Everything was full of life,

and all life was one.


When the child was a child

It had no opinions about anything.

It had no habits.

It sat cross-legged,

took off running,

had a cowlick in its hair

and didn’t make a face when photographed.’ Peter Handke
