Sunset - April 9, 2001

(c) April 9, 2001

What have you seen today my friend
what's life given to your eyes
anything unusual
enough to make you sigh

Perhaps the morning dew
shining in the sun
or the glimpse of several deer
forever on the run

Did you see the butterfly
skipping on the air
to find more natural beauty
well, let's just say it's rare

Have you ever noticed
the blossom in the tree
and wonder how it turns to fruit
once it meets the bee

How 'bout a warm spring shower
to make the flowers grow
followed just as quickly
by the sign of God's rainbow

If you didn't see these things
it may not be too late
to see the day end gracefully
and watch the sunset with your mate
