Let the child play with cards,
let him build the house,
let him see
how the wind blows it over
and how it feels.

Let him do it all over again,
let him understand
the hidden meaning of this play.

No, he is not too young
to understand
the deeper meaning
of this play.

It's never too early
to understand
and nobody is too young
to understand.
Inspired by Jean-SimΓ©on Chardin' painting "The House of Cards".
