Poem: Open Your Eyes

mb20-Family Open your eyes and see all the things around you-- the squirrels chasing each other, the birds flying. In spring, see the flowers blooming, in summer make sand castles and go swimming, in fall, rake and play in the leaves, and in winter have snowball fights, go sledding, and make snowangels and snowmen. Open your eyes and see all the things happening around you. See the trees blowing in the wind, see dogs barking at people on bikes.
