“Words are, in my not-so-humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic."

It was a stage for the new president to make her speech,

It  was  a  table  for  a family to talk and eat, and It was a

lifeguard station  off the warm sand at the  beach. When it

was  a  tree it  was  boring and  incomplete, but it became a 

house, a  fort, and a  desk to  teach. It was  a sad day when it

went  away,  Out of the ground, it was an octopus,  autopsied and 

ready to go, Driven away by pirates in great big orange and yellow vests.

This is predominately about imagination and how growing up can lessen the imagination and reality is forced to take over. Imagination is represented here by a stump that I used to play pretend on when I was a little kid.
