Enjoy Life (many years old poem)

How does a bird fly?
Or a mountain seem so high?

How is it a fish swims?
Or a branch grows limbs?

How does a flower bloom?
Or a rainy day so much gloom?

Ever stop to listen to children laugh?
Or a new born baby calf?

Ever wonder why the earth spins?
Or why a cat never learns?

Ever wake up thankful for another day?
Or how you wish it could all just stay?

Take a moment to enjoy life.
Forget about all the strife.

Take a moment to appreciate everything you're given.
That you're alive and livin'.
