Another Day Appears


Another day appears again
and allows me to use my eyes
to focus on all the beauty I see
from the ground up to the skies.

I'm up and about filled with doubt
that what I see can compare
with the feeling I get inside of me
that this big old earth's not fair.
What's good for the goose
should be good for the gander.
But as I go from hour to hour,
I'm reminded how much grander
is the beauty that grows
regardless of fairness or grace.
So I disregard the inequities
and put a smile on my face.

Let those that don't understand this
find out in time what they miss.
Their eyes are closed and do not see
that beauty is no novelty.
It's a constant daily sighting
that only opened eyes can see.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
