Today is such a pleasant day, the kind that I adore.
Look outside and catch the view. Go open up your door.
For a while I’ve been sitting, glancing at a tree.
The branches dangle like a treat right in front of me.
I see some birds who speed on by … swallowed by the green.
Some others looking more relaxed lift their wings to preen.
This scene is priceless, picturesque, a truly special prize…
Every day it waits for me, welcoming my eyes.
I get surprised all the time; how easily I’m pleased.
All I need’s my window view to make me feel appeased.
My hearts been seized, this tree’s my friend that stands right by my side.
If I could I’d pull it closer, bringing it inside.
The window isn’t wide enough; my room is much too small.
But I’ll keep looking at this tree that’s proudly standing tall.
