Happy Moment

One happy moment, stuck in place,
In which I felt my life was grand.
The roughness of my path replaced,
No longer difficult to stand.

The path I walked was rough before;
I thought I’d lose myself in trees.
The beaten path was oft’ explored,
The only gentle thing a breeze.

One happy moment, stuck in place,
Where Earth transformed, as if to soothe.
A gentle heat, a warm embrace.
The rocky path appeared to smooth.

It couldn’t last forevermore:
To rougher ground I walked apace.
I look ahead, and must adore
A happy moment, like that place.
