Enter Softly, Weary Traveler

Enter softly, weary traveler,
Leave behind your bulky things;
Take your time and saunter in
Just breathe in the sweet spring winds.

Enter softly, weary traveler;
Listen to my simple plea:
See the blossoming cherry tree
And taste the honey in your tea.

Abide with me, weary traveler;
Forget the miles, you've rightly landed.
No more work from you is demanded;
Now rest awhile, empty-handed.


***
Happy Spring!

  8. I had this weird moment when I saw your full name written out all officially, where I thought you hadn't written this. Then I remembered: that's her name, silly! Don't know what came over me. :)

    This poem is so beautiful and just what I needed to read after a stressful day.
