Senses Poems Main Poetry Index

Can you hear the rain falling

   Or smell that perfumed rose?

Thank God for ears to listen with;

   Thank God to have a nose.


Can you see the golden sun

    Which rises every dawn?

In autumn do you watch red leaves    

   Drift down to clothe the lawn?


Can you see your mother’s smile

   Or feel your father’s kiss?

Without our senses try to think

   Of all the things we’d miss.


We'd never hear good music played

   Or feel a gentle touch:

Without our senses -  yes all five -

   We’d miss out on so much.
