Little Wonders

Little Wonders

A Poem by A.Lee

Today I saw the yellow sun

Moving high above the trees

The morning birds sang their song

As the dewy grass brushed my feet

 

Today I saw a tiny rabbit

Hopping quickly through the grass

Flowers swaying in its wake

As it hurried to get past

 

Today I saw a fleeting spark

Shine in my little boy’s eyes

As he smiled and ran to play outside

I began to realize

 

Today I saw the strongest tree

Get knocked down in its prime

It gave way as the strong wind blew

Robbing it of its time

 

Today I saw that life is full

Of little wonders every day

But we rarely stop to notice

As they bloom then fade away

 

Today I saw that life is precious

Whether rabbit, child, or tree

We never know how long it will last

But we know it won’t always be

This is kind of clumsy, in my opinion, but I just wanted to get these thoughts out :)

Such beauty and wisdom in your words. I like the poem. You brought visions of nature to me in your words. A wise person can see the beauty in his life. I have a bad job. When I get home and see my daughter and grandson. I heal from the burden of life. A outstanding poem.

I love the title. It sounds like some fairy tale land which has no worries contained within. Little wonders, little wonders... Life is but a land for the feet to wander. Lovely poem of yours :)

I agree, a few rough spots. I like the repetative first line though and, of course, the beautiful theme!

I liked it! I didn't think that it was clumsy at all! I thought that the rhyming came across as being really effortless, almost to the point where I didn't even realise that the lines were rhyming. The imagery that you created was absolutely adorable, and it evoked a lot of childhood memories for me! The second half of the poem was absolutely beautiful; really deep, meaningful, and well thought-out. Fantastic write,

I Have couple of little wonders, One is about 1 ft tall and likes to stare at people, another is about 2 feet tall and likes to bully people but hates getting in trouble, and another is 3 1/2 feet tall and is very talkative and loves everyone, and the last is about 5'2 and is just plane weird. Those are my little wonders cause I'm taller then them lol. Great poem Honey!!
