Hear Their Voices


Pausing to listen to an airplane in the sky,
 stooping to watch a ladybug on a plant,
 sitting on a rock to watch the waves crash over the quayside -
 children have their own agendas and timescales. 
 As they find out more about their world and their place in it,
 they work hard not to let adults hurry them.  
We need to hear their voices.
