the air is fresh

the ground is cold

a little boy

only four years old

a poller neck skivy

with shoulder length hair

coardaroi jeans

at the bottom they flair

one eye squints

in the morning sun

second hand sneakers

and his hands are numb

a two bedroom house

was to be his home

in a country town

that not many know

magpies and sparrows

ice in the puddles

hunger pains inside

and hilltops with snow

hidden away in the country

life was very still

but today he was going to the city

for a little boy

what a thrill

get in the back

and buckle up

put your seat belt on

and shut up

the seat was made of vynal

it was very cold

the car was slow

and very old

thirty six miles

till their destination

looking out the window

that's where he got his imagination

one hour later

they had made it there

so many people

he had to stare

the tallest buildings

he had ever seen

they were blocking the sun

from the city streets

a funny feeling

being in the city

but he know's the day won't last

as everything in the city

happens so fast

so this is my story of a little boy who lives in the country and goes to the city for his first time
