Simple Pleasures

A child's smile,
A word of kindness from a secret love,
The simplest things can cause
The greatest reactions from a sincere heart.

Don't think I am silly
If I gasp in amazement at a butterfly's wings,
Or wonder at the shape of the clouds,
Or the magnificence of a single snowflake
As it melts in my hand.
Simple pleasures they may be
But magic beauty flows from the simplest of things.
