Kim Stafford - Can we catch a lizard

Can We Catch a Lizard…

D … A…  E

 

Can we catch a lizard, lazy in the sun?

Can we jump in puddles, and get all wet for fun?

Can we have another cookie, for sugar’s not a crime?

With a sigh our father said, “Some other time.”

 

Can we play Monopoly, and let me be the dog?

Can we keep a snake for pet, or just one polliwog?

Make a cage to keep some bugs, it won’t cost us a dime?

“You know,” our father said, “some other time.”

 

Can we please go fishin’, and fry ’em on the grill?

Can we please go huntin’, if only for a thrill?

Can we climb that pine tree, with all its pitch and grime?

“Listen, kids,” our father said, “some other time.”

 

Weekends were forever, summer was a tent,

Starlight was a movie of how our life was spent.

One thing father taught me, when I was in his prime:

Never say unto a child: “Some other time.”

 

So let’s go catch a lizard, lazy in the sun,

Let’s go jump in puddles, and get all wet for fun.

Let’s have another cookie, for sugar’s not a crime.

And let’s all be thankful—we still have the time.
