As I Saw The Orient


All the leaves are green, in the month of May.
Passing through the crowds, I start to see the day.

I don't see any sorrow in the sunny skies, Orient tomorrow,
In all it's people's eyes.

Gazing at a temple, I stopped along the way, well I see all the people
Kneeling, and I begin to pray.

I don't see any sorrow, in all the sunny skies,
Orient is peaceful, I hear the people's cries,
Orient tomorrow, it's all in its children's eyes.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
