Not technically a poem, but the mood and emotion this novella creates is powerful and on power with any and all great verse. This little gem is filled with quotable quotes, but for me the top two are :
“Grown-ups were once children… but only few of them remember it.”
“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
What makes the adventure journey and philosophical rumination if this little prince on earth is that it was gifted to me by my theatre teacher mrs Aziz in high school. At 16 I revisited this childhood staple and fell in love with it’s poignancy, truth and reflections!
Providing limitless food for thought, Vive Le petite Prince!
