Poem of the Week 25

​Simple Things

Carole King

Simple things mean a lot to me

Some things only children can see

Simple things like horses running free

And easy acceptance of life

Simple things never compromise

All things have a rhythm I can’t realise

I feel content in my freedom

And I feel my freedom is right

I never want to stop being a child

I want to see the flowers growing wild on the hillside

To see the sun rise in the morning

Sunlight growing, filling the skies

Simple things of the earth don’t die

They just grow and change as time goes by

There are no questions without answers

I’ve found my answer to life is living

The secret of living is life
