A repost.


             Slow down

Slow down and think on what I say
Or it will fly away.
Slow down and feel the words at play
Or they become passť.

You hold the present in your hand
The past has flown and gone.
The future has no life or stand
It waits its moments dawn.

Just feel the presence of the day
Hear the music all around.
It's there to hear in every way
In the sky and on ground.

It's in the wind each moving breeze
It echoes like a fife.
It plays the limbs of swaying trees
It is the sound of life.

Slow down and sense your life bouquet        
Or it will float away.

Ah, yes, how true, Seymour, and you say it so beautifully. I was just thinking on this today myself.....maybe children are so happy and carefree because they live for the moment...really know how to live each moment to the fullest......enjoying that bouquet....
I decided that I was going back to childhood!! And I plan to have a ball!!

It flows so nicely--and is beautiful.

This is a beautiful poem, and so true. We all need to slow down!

Seymour~

You write with such
beautifully-phrased wisdom.

I do so enjoy walking slowly through
this life .. grasping joy with every step.
Thanks for fortifying the very concept
of what I believe.
Love ya'

             Slow down

Slow down and think on what I say
Or it will fly away.
Slow down and feel the words at play
Or they become passť.

You hold the present in your hand
The past has flown and gone.
The future has no life or stand
It waits its moments dawn.

This sweet and PERFECT, wisdom filled poem made me smile so contently on this sunshiney spring morn...thank you Sy...from my heart to your pen...and vise-versa  (think about it(smile)
take care, jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

Janet Marie,
I find myself just going through reading your responses to other's poetry. They are always so pleasant and generously written

Sy,
This is not only true, but beautifully written. I always slow down when I read your verses. As Janet Marie said, they are perfection
Love Ya
Liz
