La Dolce Vita

La dolce, sweetness is best lived
In shining playhouses of sun
Flying in quiet seasons all around
Above high gardens and summits


Circling ledges secluded and old
Rhodos and pagoda dogwood
Sleeping flagstones underfoot
Walkways and stepping stones


Opening wide doors on bright air
Bruised reeds sheltered soft below
Magnolias, spruces, sumac, ferns


And by the old gate the sturdy oak
Craggy shelter of lilies and hostas
Permits the holly to edge in perennially
Leafing ordinary into newness

Ann- thank you for reminding all of us to live with thanksgiving and inspiring us to open our hearts more to all that God has for us in every moment!
