Wednesday Is Poetry Day

By A Peaceful River Shore

Sitting here on a bench by a peaceful river shore
There sails a sailboat barely seen in the misty haze
And rising in the distance is the sun's early light
The only sound I hear is the soft current's wave.

A feeling of quiet peace now joyfully surrounds me
As the horizon in the distance clearly now is seen
The beauty of the landscape is a sight to behold
And the air around me smells refreshing and clean.

The sounds of birds and families now can be heard
As the sun is rising high above the daylight sky
I listen to the sounds of life saying not a word
But feeling just a little sad as time is flying by.

The time has come for me to leave the river shore
And the park bench that I sit on every early morn
Yes I now am feeling sad as time swiftly flies by
Yet happy knowing that I'll be back again at dawn.
