Dew Drops


Dew Drops


Only the dew dared to dance with delight

on the indifferent grass.

The tired flowers

were forced to move by the wind.

And the unhappy trees

hung their limbs like burdens

weighted down by equally miserable leaves.

Only the remnants of rain

could appreciate the sun

and respond to its brightness.
