Striding along on my walk
Thinking of a new project
Now that an old one neared completion
My mind was absorbed
And I was missing the beauty
Of a lovely September summer day.

Then I heard that gentle voice
Of my heart, of my beloved
Immediately I slowed my pace
And found a quiet place in the shade
Under a spreading oak tree
I listened to the sound of crickets
And felt the gentle summer breeze
And knew I could choose another path
One of simplicity, happiness and closeness to my beloved.
