Rainbows and Butterflies

Rainbows and butterflies White clouds on blue satin A golden sun shines gloriously On Central Park in Manhattan The sound of music's playing As a jogger passes by... There's joy in the air When all of nature's alive A green garden of flowers Wild roses and lilies A water fountain springs up As a squirrel stops... and quietly listens There's magic and wonder Under a starry moonlight When lovebirds warmly gather In their nest for the night This is what love brings Hear the heart sing Faces you meet with smiles There's nothing better in this world To heal teary sad eyes... than to feel it inside Rainbows and butterflies...

Nice...just tell me why, why do you think it would it would represent your views...it was my take of Central Park while I was a student in New York...and it so sad to know that the virus made this lovely city a cry...

Are there really wild roses? (small girlish voice of wonder) Loved this one bunches, or in this case bouquets full. Ann Then I found I have left you one before...No...this one stays as well. That means the poem drew me back twice to the same place. That is excellent on so many levels... Love it... Ann

Hmmm I guess my smile emoticon doesn't work on here. Not sure why it put two question marks after beautiful. Anyway... It made me smile. Thank you Arturo.
