Smiling With Us In The Light

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Oh, what a joy it is
to live and see the sun and sky above, To be able to rejoice
in the gladness

Pygmy Water Lily,  Nymphaea tetragona
Fields are green,
the meadows bright,
Streams are singing clear,
And all the world is
smiling with us
in the light
so dear.

The world seems brighter
on our walk,
all cares get
lost in bliss;
Our sun shines forth
with added glow,
and all the sky
smiling on us.

Neoregelia marmorata endemic to Brazil
Keep a green tree
in your heart and
perhaps the singing
bird will come
Chinese proverb

Nature in her green,
tranquil woods heals
and soothes all afflictions.
John Muir *
