A Beautiful Day - Poem by Valsa George

Today is the beautiful New Year day
With the clear blue sky above
A gentle breeze playing on every leaf
And every heart throbbing with love

There is so much beauty couched in this day
The valleys echo the feathered minstrels’ lay
The tall trees spread their mighty arms
And children, in their shade, joyously play

There is no vexation in the air
The pain of yesterday cast to the bin
The anxiety of tomorrow held at bay
The prospects of today overpowering the din

When I walk through the grassy meads
Wild blossoms kiss my feet
As I inhale the salubrious air
I feel the glee with which Nature, so richly replete

Every heart overflows with cheer
On every face, smile shuttles from lips to eyes
Before me is the promise of a new dawn
A fresh resolve rekindles every face

Sprawling before me is a magic realm
To its secret doorway, I hold the keys
Everything around, has a shimmering glow
In the bounty of blessings, my heart rejoices

I tell my spirits to seek no rest
But walk fearless to dizzying heights
Holding the reins and quickening my pace
For I know I am heading towards the lights

There are great glories for the eyes to see
There is so much for the senses to perceive
From little cares, when the mind, set free
Sure, there’s reason to rejoice than to grieve!

I can always say my glass is only half full
But let me perceive things in the positive way
The day sure has a grimy side, I know
But let gloomy truths not spoil this lovely New Years day


I wish all my friends on poem hunter, a great New Year with bright sunshine, a clear sky, a lot of beauty around and many many happy occasions to enjoy and cherish!

    My favorite lines:

    There is no vexation in the air
    The pain of yesterday cast to the bin
    The anxiety of tomorrow held at bay
    The prospects of today overpowering the din.............if only each day good be as grand...at least at the start!

    some more favorite parts:

    playing on every leaf

    smile shuttles from lips to eyes

    i notice a departure from the 'rhyme scheme', and i would rather see such a departure than have a rhyme scheme dictate too much to the author.

    thanks, Valsa, for the nice wish, but here in too-dry California, we could use fewer clear and sunny days and more snowy and rainy days! AND fewer people watering lawns and washing cars AND just plain fewer people!

    Great poem to welcome the New Year with positive prospects. I particularly liked:
    There are great glories for the eyes to see
    There is so much for the senses to perceive
    From little cares, when the mind, set free
    Sure, there’s reason to rejoice than to grieve!

    Also, the glass with half filled.....let's be grateful that we have a glass and something filled. There are those who don't have glasses and don't have anything to fill! We thank God for his blessings!
    Have a great day ahead, Valsa!

    We tell our spirits will soar high
    And walk fearless on the plains around us
    Gaining optimism from what you have said we shall set our pace right
    For we know we may once head towards the peaks of rosier days.

    A fine journey along your side makes it pleasant Madam Valsa. (Report) Reply
