Life's riches

Such riches I have known beyond compare Which neither gold nor sapphire could outshine; The scent of honeysuckle in the air Or velvet touch of newborn skin on mine. My senses have rejoiced at the array Of tantalising tastes and sweet perfumes. Each season bears its own unique display And year on year God's providence resumes. And oh what stunning sights and stirring sounds Uplift the soul to transcendental heights. A tapestry of richest hue abounds In all of nature's manifold delights.

Thank you Georgia. It's one of the senses which are least often referred to but can give so much pleasure.

Thank you so much for such a positive remark,Jan. I'm not sure about the obligatory non-rhyme for the last couplet and wonder whether to adapt it to the first rhyme scheme which I prefer. I haven't entered it yet!
