|Winter Landscape from All Free Download.com|
The sun smiles upon my face
So bright is the light it bears
For the day is young, and so am I
So why not soar out into the sky.
The snow glistens in white
Crunching beneath my feet
A chilling sensation of the spine
Yet I fall and angels appear.
Into the swamp lands
Of mush and deadened brush
My smile still gleams
Mud upon my face without a care.
Trekking along the cement sidewalks
I stare off into the distance
As cars whiz by, busier than bees
In the dead of winter.
Why must they be in such a hurry?
I really want to know
Because the day is just beginning
As the evening begins to snow.
A blizzard roars past my body
I sway back and forth like a tree
But my roots are firmly planted
And I smile all the same.
When a burning light forms
Before my eyes I can see
Through all the lines of adversity
I know how to seize the day.
For the Reader: Carpe diem.
