Have a great Day

Written by: Ian Howard

Have a lovely day, Yours Ian.T
 
New Woods
I will take you,
Where you should be.
Enclosed and safe,
But also free.
 
Where as a youth,
I spent many an hour.
The songs of the birds,
The show of flowers.
 
Turn to the right,
There see the path.
Brush aside the sight,
Of those blue skies.
 
Walk with my trees,
They hold no airs
Feel them close,
Around your cares.
 
Leaving your thoughts,
So far behind.
Ahead is the glade,
I know locked in time.
 
Its arms whisper,
Here you may rest.
Sit where the Oak,
Has made you a nest.
 
A bough that dips,
Curves at your feet.
The grass of beauty,
Here is so green.
 
It holds your feet,
You are king or queen.
Hold a thought
deep in your mind.
 
Of quiet peace,
Creeping as a vine.
Hear not the babble,
Of voices there.
 
Just let the breeze,
Play with your hair.
Let your thoughts,
Become crystal clear.
 
No riot in your mind,
Leave cares behind.
Feel all the places,
You have loved.
 
Brush and touch,
With thought’s anew
Of things been left.
Still, time to do.
 
Rest here within,
The reasons of years
Tired of holding,
other’s dreams.
 
Let them see,
The scheme of things.
Now sit and talk,
To whoever you see.
 
Ask of them,
“What do you want of me?”
They will pause,
You will feel so free.
 
For you to hold,
Not letting go.
Pause a moment,
Let them show.
 
There look inside,
See the real you.
Not the tired one,
Of others times.
 
The inner beauty,
That always shines.
Bathe in this time,
They will give to you.
 
This rest here,
Will see you through.
When ready to look,
At new blue skies.
 
Hold out your hand,
Open your eyes.
The woods will fade,
Away as the dew.
 
They say,
”Thanks for being you”
“Walk within our ways
When you need to see”
 
“Just turn right,
At the nearest tree.”
