Did You See the Sky Today?

Did you see the sky today?

Did you stop somewhere on your way?

I did, but they thought me strange;

They stared at me like I was derange –

From the traffic man to the vendor man

All around their gazes ran –

Save for the paupers who everyday sit,

By the side of the road never to quit.

Back in the hills from where I come,

Beyond one’s wildest dreams maybe to some –

Blue skies by day and diamonds by night;

How I wish in me lies the might

To tear from the canvas off a fragment,

And share this piece of sentiment –

How when stainless stretch the big blue sky,

My heart stops still and my worries die.
