Today I read a short poem titled The Eyes written by an eight years old child and I found it great. My eyes are very very big They are big enough to hold the mountain the ocean the blue sky the whole world My eyes are very very small Sometimes I feel something sad They just can't hold two tear drops

Now I doubt whether it is written by a child. Perhaps some words are too innocent and then it can touch us.

@youless This is what I thought, someone wrote the poem and said it was written by the child.

I'm guessing you translated the Chinese characters of the poem into English?

Of course. This is a Chinese boy's poem. Perhaps my translation is not perfect.

@youless _I really can not tell since I have not seen the original for comparison but I think you manage to express the emotions of the poem and that is what poetry is all about.

You should have credited the child. You may mention his/her name. It would a big honor for him/her.
