Feeling sad is not only for elders
as the child gets sad too often
mostlywhen her mother scolds
as to behave as told.
Children being playful and free
get going around happily
without anyone restricting their spree
but get upset over small things
and forsake their glee.
The oldies nurture the feeling more
while the child forgets then and there
the little one is easily in the fore
as the elders panic over everything
the child gets back into the fold as before.
That marks the difference so remarkable
as man and child differ greatly
one saddened by the events untenable
thinking of the consequences great
the other gets sad for only a moment probable.
