Soft is the Heart of a Child - Wyndham Glenconner

Soft is the Heart of a Child (II)

details x3

Bitter are the tears of a child:
Sweeten them.
Deep are the thoughts of a child:
Quiet them.
Sharp is the grief of a child:
Take it from him.
Soft is the heart of a child:
Do nothing to harden it.

Lady Pamela Wyndham Glenconner

And may we always have that sense of awe and wonder that children have when looking at the world.

Hi, Ed. Maybe it's just a time thing.

Hello, Elis. The colours together were a bit different for me here.
