When the scorching heat beats down,
when the streets are bleak and gray
The sighing beech, the dappled shadows
and the river’s cool embrace.
When you shake from loneliness
when he, betraying, turns his back
The quiet purr beneath your hand,
the blissful smile and elated laugh.
When you despair of the far-away end,
when you lose the resolve to rise
The golden voice that frees your heart,
the vastness of the starry skies.
And forever remember,
remember, virtue exists on this earth.

- Description: I'm much too emotional - the smallest thing upsets me, but the smallest thing can also make me smile. The simplest things serve as reminders that there is still beauty in the world. I haven't written a structured poem in ages, I hope it's okay.
