Jan, this is a most beautiful poem. You see the small beauties that make this life so wonderful, and make us see them, too. These are the sights that gladden our hearts. They are what really matters, and what needs our protection and care. Thanks for this most lovely poem.

And thank you, Joanna, for bringing us an April gift of beauty-filled poems.
