A lovely book of poems



lying in bed

he hears the sun rise


forest full of trees

trees full of birds

birds full of song


he rises, feels for his cane

shuffles his way outside

and orchestra of birds


turns towards the rays

that he cannot see

opens his ear lids and 

smiles at the morning
