Small Child Singing

Whenever I hear
a small child singing
I experience an overwhelming urge
to stop her
and say
Hey kid
listen
you need to sing on more than one tone
like maybe differentiate between
the notes
since that song you’re singing requires
a range of about an octave and a half
and you’re singing everything on C and D
though not so tunefully
that anyone could tell the difference
between them

And then I feel super mean
and punish myself
by listening to “Let It Go”
for the seven hundredth time
