I sat on the soft grass under a tree
Alongside a pretty pool
Where water lilies grew
And the shade was wonderfully cool.
My book lay forgotten on my lap
As I watched the dragonflies
Hovering back and forth,
Miniature helicopters in disguise.
The hustle and bustle of the world
Was forgotten, left behind,
Little birds sang sweetly
In tune with the song in my mind.
How peaceful it was in the park;
I was able to reflect on my life
And resolve to make a change
To end all the discord and strife.
