Just a new day


Just a new day I had thought upstairs
Sitting on my little cradle at dawn
Expecting the food vendor I had dreamt inwards
All this gummy dirts were washed down
Just like the moment between life and death
Looking at my back, it was these bees I doubt around
I beheld not an apiary in the depth
Round my tangerine they buzz abound
Just a trivial relief
Allies came saying they are creatures of the great one
Appreciated by men through this belief
Oh! I said I shall be as this crayon
To appreciate the bees
Fortunately they come my ways.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
