To be idle is an art
To do nothing 
To sit still
To savour the moment
To lay claim to quietude 
The adult looks on it as wastage
Of energy
Of resources
Of time
Of money
The child revels in it
In its freedom
In its uniqueness 
In its existence
In its peace
In idle chatter there is love
In idle exchanges there is affection
In idle relaxation there is a nullification
Of the mind
Of logic
Of hurried reasoning 
Give in to the Idler 
She is beautiful
She is non-judgemental
She is important
She is a necessary part of this play on Earth
