What a wonderful view,
I vision, as I sit,
On a bench,
On this beautiful, cold Fall day.
Looking north observing,
All that God,
Has displayed before me,
Just thinking, if it's all meant to be?
To my right, the browning leaves,
Falling from their trees,
The grass, is still green.
Before, the glorious sunset,
To my west,
My shadow, is silhouetted, on the bright,
Orange sands to my right.
The dark green waters,
Of the bay, seem blue,
From the clear sky,
Of this beautiful day's view.
A woman, by the shore,
Feeds the gulls,
Along the beach,
With scraps, she's able to spare.
On this beautiful day,
she washes her hands,
At the edge, of the bay,
Reciting a silent prayer,
Before continuing, on her way.

|"A Beautiful Day" and a beautiful poem too, William. Well, no wonder it is written, Psalm 19, "The heavens declare the glory of God: and the firmament sheweth His handiwork." According to the view, which I've taken, this poem is telling a similar story. God bless!|
