Uriah Hamilton


Simple Clothes


When love is not enshrined
In unrealizable romantic notions,
But wears the simple clothes
Of ordinary kindness,
Then everybody’s face
Is as lovely
As July’s greatest rainbow
After a tempestuous storm.

Keep your heart warm
And see God
In the delicate smile
Of everyone.

    Profound, and lovely. It reminded me (for some reason) of Louis Armstrong singing 'What a Wonderful World' - I see friends shaking hands, Saying How Do You Do/ They're really saying I Love You, And I think to myself, What a wonderful world. -- your poetry makes the world more wonderful. A smile from me. (Report) Reply
