The little boy waiting for the sailor to come back to the quay [in Charles Causley’s “Nursery Rhyme of Innocence and Experience”] can be about the drum, the parakeet, and the fez, or it can be about the loss of his innocence, because he discovers war as he is waiting for the sailor to come home. Charles Causley, who wrote that poem, didn’t write specifically for children or adults. He just wrote poems, and they can be appreciated by anyone who wants to appreciate them.
