Visit in the Woods


As I peer out this country window

I think of words like summer rain

Or phrases such as gentle sprinkle

That alleviates your inner pain

I suffer some for other's sorrows

As I know they do for mine

The best way of helping others

Is to make your own life sweet and kind

If by doing and example

You can help one other soul

If you believe and show THEIR virtue

Your own existence is made whole.
