The Little Things [a poem]

By Leon Stevens | Featured Contributor


Stop. Feel that? 
The warmth of the sun 
The breeze on your face 
Rain. It has its own unique smell 
Feels like tiny punches when it lands 
Wherever you are 
There is beauty and wonder about 
Even if seemingly insignificant 
A smell, a color, a sight, a feel 
There is always something to appreciate 
Like cool grass under bare feet

Of the night’s storm
Yet now I see, I behold
The awakening rose
That is blossoming
In this Dawn

The song of Summer’s ending
Lament to lost enchanted days
Sings in the early autumn winds
And rustling leaves born on the breeze
And echoes through the avenues
Of the early turning trees.

The parting hymn of Autumn
Sung soft into the evening wind
Sighs mournfully, and solemn
Leaving not a breath of warmth behind
It lilts and moans
In tilts and groans
The falling leaves to find.
