Nature's Cure


The morning awakens with the beauty of the sun.

Life scurries about making room for fun.

Then, midday brings a needed squall

With gentle rains longed for by all.

They sit to drink from the fountain of clay

Brought on by the weather of this midday.

Huddled at home at peace and free

The quiet brings with it serenity

For soon the eyes of the playful young

Will dim the wittiness found in their choired tongue.

The dreams of this night will reflect the play

That was brought on by this joyous day.

Upon these faces the truth will creep,

They will smile as they dream and sleep,

Greatly awaiting the waking of tomorrow

Their eyes spy the sun and their parents follow.

Now that the dark has moved out of the way

The youth of the world find a game to play.

Something to be remembered for some time to come,

Something to contribute to this great sum.

Hey Moira! This was awesome! I am at my sister in-law's house and we decided to do a "poetry reading". I was scanning some recent poem Hubs and I read this one aloud. Everyone liked it! Great job as always! Voted up.

Voted up and awesome,

This has a real energy about it and the readers eyes literally bounce along the lines (well, almost literally lol).
