poem “It Pleases Me” by Michael Traveler, author/poet.
it pleases me to take a morning walk with you
beside a river, a creek or even a lake will do
it pleases me to look up at the stars and see them winking back at me
hear the birds singing among the wildflowers in early spring
i know these things aren’t flashy or expensive and are not at all in fashion or even the latest craze
nevertheless it pleases me
to share this time with You
author’s Note:I’ve always been a little out of step with the crowd, always looked at life a little bit differently than those around me. Perhaps, it’s the artist in me or the writer. Whatever the reason, it’s allowed me to see the world in a way that pleases me..It’s allowed me to see and taste and hear and touch the beauty and wonder of this marvelous world and share it with you. And for that, I am eternally grateful..I can’t think of a more amazing way for a writer to go through life than to share God’s creation with you ..
