Faith Of Childhood



The simple faith of childhood gives comfort and surcease.
Nothing must be understood so there's unruffled peace.

The simple faith of childhood gives aegis and defense.
Nothing must be understood so there's no commonsense.

The simple faith of childhood gives answer and report.
Nothing must be understood so there's the last resort.

The simple faith of childhood gives promise and forecast.
Nothing must be understood so there's a future past.

The simple faith of childhood gives order and design.
Nothing must be understood so there's no asinine.

The simple faith of childhood gives shelter and refuge.
Nothing must be understood so there's apt subterfuge.
