You there

You there

You there in the evening light
Have you not seen a time
When the sky shone azure blue
And rested easy on the mind

Have you not seen a child at play
Laughing for no reason at all
Simply because the joy of life
Beckoned him with its call

Have you not seen a river winding
A tortoise fish snake or toad
A crane rising on its wings
As you walked down a road

Have you not shared the blessing
That trees and flowers can give
Had it at least lift some of the
Burden..of what it takes to live

Have you not seen and I'll only
Ask this one thing more
The incredible undefinable
With but a peek..behind loves

Open door
