'Tis Surely A Wondrous Thing

To hear a blackbird's melodiously fruity song

To see a summer garden in gloriously full bloom

To smell a fresh-baked loaf of bread, still warm from the oven

To taste the first ripe strawberry of the season, just picked from the garden

To feel the luxury of crisp, clean sheets as you slide into bed

'Tis surely a wondrous thing...
To awake each morning and know the joy of being alive

Just saying how I feel today.


  1. That's a wonderful way to feel!

    1. Well, I may feel differently tomorrow!

  2. Yes yes yes to all of those.
    And the earthy smell after a dry spell and a summer shower

  3. Absolutely agree - especially the bird song and clean sheets part!
