I awoke today
to looming clouds,
and so sighing I said
I'll write a poem today.

This isn't a poem of love
or hate.
It shan't be hard to understand,
so please, wait.

Take the time today,
to look around
at the mug of tea you just drank,
and at the small child that smiled your way.

Find beauty in small things,
and details.
Find the messages being sent
in the chipped bottles,
they always wash ashore.

And when the sun sets,
reflect.
On beginning and ending,
the good and the bad,
they're all blessings.

So next time you feel like crying,
you'll look to your right
and see the birds pecking at
the gleeful orphan's hand,
and you'll smile,
just like that.

You'll turn around
and see,
the mother and child embrace,
and you'll smile,
just like that.

Because it's the beautiful people,
that make life bearable.

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;
