Poem: Untitled Poem 4

mb30-PoemByMike This morning I awoke Feeling that I had lost my smile Not knowing where to look Not remembering where I had left it.

I sat On the sofa Breathing in and breathing out And gradually I found my smile.

First I heard it carried on a mighty, icy wind . Then I saw it stretched in the shadows Of skeleton trees across the snowy yard. Then I fe lt it on my face Where I had left it the night before.
