I Love

Here's a poem I ran across in my folders and files that I wrote some time ago. This is actually a revised version, but that's the best part about writing it. You can think about it for a while and then when you come up with a word that will express your thought better you can change it!

Things That I Love

I love the smell of a dryer-
As it tosses and tumbles away.
I love the feel of sunshine-
When it shines on my face each day

I love the feel of the breeze-
In the summer as it fingers my hair.
I love to hear and see the birds-
As they dance throughout the air.

I love to find and lose myself-
In the world of countless books
I love to taste - sometimes to help-
Make things not often cooked

I love so many different things-
Some large and some so small,
But there is One, my dearest friend-
That I love best of all!!
"There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother."
Proverbs 18:24


  1. I love your poem! You need to collect all your poems and put them in a book. I'll help if you want, since I'm doing just that for Gramma's recipes anyway.

  2. I really liked your poem. Sometimes I like to write as I experience. That is what Haiku is all about. You really cannot separate the poem from the experience. Knittery's idea to put your little gems in a book is a good one. Take her up on it before she changes her mind.

    Have you hearad from Tina lately?

  3. I love the way you express yourself ... definitely a keeper.
