APED: "all you need"

Dirt and water. All you need.
An afternoon of fun.
Squish the mix beneath your feet.
Mud pies in the sun.

Tree and sunlight. All you need.
Peace after you've played.
A nap, a lunch, perhaps a book.
Resting in the shade.

Shoes and pathway. All you need.
Then you're bound away.
Forest, meadows, city street.
Wander though the day.

As for me? I'm old now, child.
Enjoy those while you're new.
Go on. I'll just wait here a while,
And take delight in you.
