Lest We Miss the Music

May life never be so loud
We miss the music
Or so consuming
We lose its romance

May love never be so common
We miss its miracle
Or so testing
We forget to dance

Look, look all around
For there is more
than we often
take time to see

May life never be so busy
…we miss its poetry

  3. This is my first visit to your blog, but it definitely won't be the last.

    This poem is beautiful...such wise words.


  4. Janet,
    It's amazes me that you don't have tons of comments as your poetry is so lovely.

    I am taking a blogging break( I mentioned it on today's post)
    I will miss your poetry and look forward to reading you soon.

    Take care

  5. Margie, enjoy your break! You are so sweet...
