Sarah's Smile

Sweet as honey from the hive Warm as the hearth on cold winters night Bright as the sun of a new day Cheerful as the song of a bird in flight Strong as the blade of a swordsman posed to strike Steady as the north star at night Soft as a kitten's coat Beautiful as the northern light Gentle as a babbling brook Playful as a puppy at her best Pure as the new fallen snow Peaceful as a babe at mother's breast It can comfort when your in pain It can make you happy when you are gray It can tell the tale of 1000 words It can be the perfect end to a long stressful day

Beautiful poem--lovely images. Reminds me of my sister-in-law. I'm going to print it and put a copy in her birthday card. Hope you don't mind. Thanks. Carol
