A Perfect Day


The sun is shining

The birds are singing

The flowers swing in their baskets , gay

The wind chimes tinkle a peaceful tune

As the breeze with the foliage plays

The clouds float by in the bluest of skies

The grasses sway gracefully

With their burden of seed they are heavily weighed

Ready to fly away

What could be wrong with a day like this?

Though I know there are wars and strife

On a day like this it’s hard to imagine some struggle for their life

And it doesn’t help if those who are well

Start feeling like they have sinned

If they turn out their light in sympathy

Everyone’s light goes dim

So I’ll not feel guilty for enjoying this day

And I ‘ll offer  a prayer of thanksgiving

May this perfect moment extend without end

Round the world and be felt as a blessing
