My Quiet Corner

A quiet corner means to me
Just sitting under a big oak tree
Watching the birds in the clear blue sky
Soaring up high and perching nearby

When gazing to the left of me
I see a beehive full of sweet honey
As I look to the right of me
Waves are forming from a deep blue sea

When looking up toward the sky
Beholding God's creation with the naked eye
Then looking down toward the ground
Oh what beauty that can be found

Look all around you in your quiet corner
For there is no room for the thoughts of a scorner
Each of us should have a quiet corner
With all that surrounds us we never are a loner

    Nature's quiet corner is always filled with wonder and beauty, enough to fill books with poetry to eternity and beyond. Don't know about you, but nature always recharges my batteries and helps me get through life's daily grind. Beautiful, thoughtful poem, I like it very much. RoseAnn
