A Day Of Wonder - Poem by Marilyn Lott

Have you ever had a day of wonder
Where anything was a possibility?
Looking through the eyes of a child
So fresh and new and free?

Huge trees before the winter thaw
Icy limbs struggle along
Teetering a bit precariously
As you hum your favorite song

Oh look, there in the park is a statue
Of a huge gorilla standing there
A child engulfed in its arms
So fragile, so sweet and fair

You walk along further still
A pond filled with ducks and ice
But the sun is gleaming down
And makes the day so nice

Brilliant red berries with a backdrop
Of red rock that we love so
It’s truly a day of wonder
And we sort of hate to see it go!
