Poetry

Look out your window

Look out your window, over the hill
past the daunting, past the chill.
You'll find the whispering trees 
swaying in the breeze
The light of the day is quite a sight
It thrills me and fills me with pure delight
The sun lights up the shadows
like a candle in the night
The bees are buzzing past the bank
while the robins rush to the river,
their voices ring as if they are of highest rank
There's a river that flows that shimmers like gems
the flowers are picturesque, with golden stems
You may think what I say is not true
But look out your window when the sky is blue
and you will see what I say is as true as can be
and this is the place where I will flee
