The Little Red Ball

A little red ball rolled next to me,

I wonder where it’s going?

It came from somewhere, I don’t know,

And seems as if it’s glowing!

 

I reached my hand to pick it up,

And then it seemed to move!

I took a fright and backed away,

The ball did not approve!

 

It bounced up thrice and turned around,

Then rolled towards me fast!

I tried to scream out in my fear,

But then the ball was past!

 

I shook my head the fear was gone,

But now I start to wonder?

Is there someone in control?

Or was it just a blunder?

 

It seemed intent as it rolled away,

As if it had a mission.

And there is me in hot pursuit

To know is my ambition.

 

Was it magic that sent that ball?

To make my spirits soar?

Laughter bursts between my lips,

I know I’m wanting more!

 

I look around with some dismay,

It seems the ball has gone.

But it left me feeling happy,

And joy to which I’m drawn.

 

I learned a lesson here this day,

Of marvels that abound.

All we have to do is look.

And wonders will be found

    What a fun poem! It shows what joy the simple things in life can bring. We’re always looking for joy in all the doo-dads and glitter around us. But joy abounds in all those “common” things we ignore. I love this poem!
