On “Daisy Chain on rue de Rivoli”, photo, 1978, by Robert Doisneau.
Human life is full of adventures,
from which, many times, we cannot deviate.
On the contrary, if we face them,
with body and spirit combined,
they bring us achievements, often rewards.
These children see this street crossing
as so great a feat and a boldness,
although it may be, perhaps, simple
and ordinary one school excursion.
With terrific insight the photographer
recorded this scene,
an example to be followed by us,
who became adults in this world.
May we hold hands, hearts too, to smooth
and relieve the burdens we carry all days!
