HOP, SKIP AND JUMP (whimsy poem)



Through this life, never thinking of the moment


Through this life

Never thinking of the moment

But living in the moment

The day is here

I’m hoping that it will bring some cheer

Flitting here and there

Without a care

Skipping over the negative

Skipping for joy

Oh boy

The dawn just breaking

What are we forsaking?

Not a cloud in the sky

The rain clouds have passed me by

Way up there in the lofty skies

The sun yet to shine

Then it’ll be yours and mine

The frosty ground

Has me a leap frogging

Over the whimsy bare dandelion

Its fragility, its delicacy

Standing so tall and strong

Oh this is a wondrous feat

My wings scattering the few seeds

Seeds that will grow in the coming months

Oh I know! Those pesky dandelions

The bane of your lives

But they will always survive

No matter what you try to do

They will always shine through

Glittering, shimmering

In the day break

I flit here and there

Backwards, forwards

Hopping and flitting

Jumping and flying

Spreading my wings

Spreading those seeds

Seeds of newness

Like the newborn day

Hooray, hooray

Leaping like a frog

From one lily to another

Oh such joy

Oh girl, oh boy

Oh such joy to everyone

On this newborn day

Singing on this newborn day

The new seasons are coming

Day by day

The days become lighter


On each and every newborn day
