I had a tiny body once
so often rapt with joy.
It turned the wheels of tiny bikes
and proclaimed “Here comes a boy!”
It left me bleeding once or twice
and bumped a thing or two
as I flew around this giant world
and learned to steer it true.
Everything that held the line
from getting all confused
was new and out in front of me
and replaced what I misused.
Now giant eyes have seen the world
but in glancing glance away
From the giant things I once beheld
but are tiny now today.
