There are things that calm my soul
Like butterflies, clouds, and sunsets
Watching moonlight dance on water
Just a few of Mother Nature’s assets

Listening to the rhythm of rain
Enjoying sunrise come early morn
Different colored flowers in bloom
Winter trees standing naked and forlorn

Trees once more becoming fully clothed
With the vibrant rebirth of Spring
Enjoying the breeze on my front porch
While listening to the Robin’s sing

These are just a few of the things
That tend to calm my soul
Please, I beg your pardon now
While I take a leisurely stroll
