"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne


Spring.

April showers wash the windows again.

Lilies in bloom

Blow at my feet,

We dance in the street,

Sun’s up above—

She’s falling in love

Once more with planet Earth,

That’s true.

Stroll in the shade

A sweet promenade.

Today is the greatest day in forever.

 

Waves

Lap at the baby’s ocean feet,

Sand-caves, castles of rocks,

Mountains of foam—

July is my home

Like the sun and clouds and

Cold lemonade,

A sweet promenade—

Today is the greatest day in forever.

 

Fall,

Green turns to golden brown,

Leaves fly.

Wind,

Howling cold air,

Climbing the stair,

Whipping my hair.

Orange balloons,

Cool harvest moons,

See winter skies

Dying again,

Chestnuts cracks,

The fireplace roars.

Watch it fade.

Take a sweet promenade.

Take a sweet promenade.

 

Even if the world should crumble

Tomorrow

Fear no pain and dread no

Sorrow,

Wander in the sunlit, green glades,

A sweet promenade.

Today is the greatest day in forever.

A beatnik or hippie style poem that sounds like jazz to me.

"It Will Be Good." (complicated semi-spiritual emotional story.)

"Upon his bench the pieces lay
As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
