Another Day



Another morning . . .

Another day!
What a gift!
I shall rise straight-away!

To feel the sun and gulp the cool air!
To hear the small woodfinch
That's whistling out there!

Another day! What a wonder!
I love the rain; love the thunder!
I shall ingest every moment
Of this wonderful thing; let my heart
Feel the beating of birds on the wing!

To see faces and places again is to me,
The most wonderful thing that ever could be!

A moment, a second, an hour ...

A day!
