A Jaunty Afternoon Walk

A day today that just went by
a walk in a balmy but blustery day
a stranger strode by with happy Hello
with a smile that sent lightness to my heart
steps buoyant, in a cheerful jaunty way
all cheery and gay with a gladsome smile
lighthearted and sunny, whistling an upbeat tune

This exuberant and exultant man
jubilant and rapt with the wonderful day
rejoicing and thrilled to be alive
hopeful and optimistic for a rosy tomorrow

what was his story, I wondered
was he free from all his sorrow
his burden heavy, and feeling blue,
was he brokenhearted and cast down,
by the woman he dearly loved
or crestfallen and dejected,
by children who depressed him

was he despondent and disconsolate
after losing everything he owned
even so, he was no longer down or downcast,
nor was he downhearted and forlorn

this train of words passed by
visions of embroidered miracles
laughter bubbling out my lips
happy endings on my fingertips
Its heartening and heartwarming
inspiring and stimulating to songs
that spells of stirring, uplifting joy

A delightful and enjoyable sojourn
outside the door on a sunny evening
A pleasant encounter so welcomed
a joyous and happy day!
