contentment




If you cannot see the mountains
Do not grumble or complain;

There is beauty in the flowers
As they grow upon the plain.






If you cannot see the ocean
Do not go about and sigh'
Just you climb to some green hilltop
And then watch the clouds go by.



There is beauty all around you
If you but the beauty see.


I tend to have these tendencies............
If I live near the ocean,
I long to see the mountains.
When I lived around fields of wheat,
I wanted the ocean.
What I need to do,
Is see beauty in my own front yard...........
