The Greatest Sounds I Never Heard

 The greatest sounds
I never heard
The sweet kiss of a child

without words
The power of a smile

Snow falling
On a sylvan field
Heads bent in silent prayer

The touch
Of anothers hand
To let me know they care

The magic
Of a sunrise
That heralds a new day

The comfort
Of a mothers love
Watching puppies play

Acts of kindness
You did not know occurred

These are all
The greatest sounds
I have never heard

About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs. I started Oldmainer as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations, with some poetry thrown in. I welcome anyone that wants to kick back and join me here on the porch, exploring all the gifts we have been given and the memories collected. Thanks for stopping by.
