Blades of grass grow green,
With water and soil and sun.

Lovely Linda....smiling at you.


The freshly cut grass
comes in on children's shoes.
the house is laughing.

I still need to mow.

Smell the grass fresh mown
Scented essence of life's breath
sweet from Mother's breast

I always enjoy your work, you make me smile.

Happiness isn't something that happens to you, it's created from within you.  Joy is a state of mind.

Choo!

smell the fresh mown grass
wafting, weaving on the air
Ah-choo! Ah-choo! Ahhhh-!

(I love your poem, I love a green lawn, it is a verdant mantle, but I must admit it gives my nose fits when I mow mine or "they" mow theirs.

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

Well I must tell you that seeing this little grass of a poem coming in to the light of day again certainly came as a delightful surprise! Thank you!

May all your paths in life be as sweet and green as the new grass in Spring!
