So this is Life

By     Avatar

The beauty of a deep red rose
its sensuous odor juxtaposed
this is life and how it goes
on this bright April day.

A fruitful dogwood spreads its limbs
reminding us to remember Him
Who died that we might live again
on this bright April day.

Greening hedges front a fence
and from these hedges come a sense
of life well lived without pretense
on this bright April day.

Old greeness steps aside for new
whose brilliance makes the old look blue
It's right, it's new, it's time, it's true
on this bright April day.


So this is life and how it goes
it like a river swiftly flows
and where it take us no one knows
on this bright April day.
