Forget the nuances

I rake the grass and pile the leaves
Trim some branches, off the trees
Do the chores of the early dawn
Smell my breakfast on the breeze.

I love the crisp of mornings' air,
With the wisp of bacon there
The announcing birds calling morn
My wives call in her night wear.

It is a passion very strong,
The aura of evensong,
A place that I am truly drawn
A feeling that I, belong.

I count my blessings one on one,
Each coming of the mornings sun.
It seems the reason I was born
For that matter anyone.

And when I lay me down to sleep
I pray this kingdom ever keep.

I loved this Seymour...especially that
last line.

Counting blessings! We should all do that more. We'd then realize the precious gift that life is. And that the best in life is free! Another excellent poem, Seymour!
