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 Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
