A CHILD

A child with a rattle in its mother's lap
Rattling and laughing.

Sometimes the rattle laughs
Sometimes the child;
Sometimes they both laugh:
The rattle and the child.

The rattle for the boy a toy of joy;
The joyous child a toy for the rattle.

And joyously holds the lap that holds them both.
