A Golden Day

Rating: 2.9
The subtle beauty of this day
Hangs o'er me like a fairy spell,
And care and grief have flown away,
And every breeze sings, "all is well."
I ask, "Holds earth or sin, or woe?"
My heart replies, "I do not know."

Nay! all we know, or feel, my heart,
Today is joy undimmed, complete;
In tears or pain we have no part;
The act of breathing is so sweet,

Another one of Ella's inner peace for a once troubled soul poems. A soul now care-free, unshackled by life's tormenting burdens.

In my last poem I meant to quote the poem today is joy undimmed, complete. Stupid auto-correct; unsigned instead of undimmed.

I know I write this often but sometimes I just don't understand why some well-written poems score so low. This poem sums up so many experiences I've had hiking through nature. When my friend and I walk through nature, out in some beautiful scenic area, it truly is a respite from worry and woe. Forget about the pressures currently occurring in your life, forget your worries about things future and past. Today is joy unsigned complete. This sort of a poem about mindfulness and being fully engaged in the present moment.
