    This is a beautiful turn of words:

    I knelt and picked
    A leaf in hand
    And it was simply luck
    That it's here I find

    The whole poem feels like a lovely walk in the woods, reflecting on a past that is not so painful, but still somewhat sorrowful. And this is nice:

    A leaf that brings
    The really best in me...

    Nature can have such a soothing effect. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
