The wonders of a beautiful afternoon


In the stillness of the day

I sit quietly and reflect

On all the wondrous things

I so often tend to neglect


I become fully entranced

By the soft billowy clouds

Which are often forgotten

Amongst the usually oblivious crowds


The flowers captivate me too

Each one smiling at the sun

Seems God’s perfect glory

Can never be outdone


The trees all leisurely sway

To the beat of the zealous breeze

And the bees and the wild things hum

To the rustling of tender leaves


There’s magic in the air

Drifting along on a waft of sweet perfume

And I’m lost once again

To the wonders of a beautiful afternoon

  9. I was going to say beautiful, but that word is used before (several times) so I’ll just say “This lovely poem warms my heart.” Thank you.
