I smiled when I saw this chalk love on a nearby street.
I soaked in the verdant life all around me. So much green everywhere.
I read poetry on a bench facing the river. I basked in the sunlight. I felt the breeze on my cheek. The air smelled fresh and clean.
I wore my schoolmarm/sailor dress but no matter its charm, it couldn't shake my melancholy.
And finally, I watched this tiny bird for much too long, until the light from the setting sun barely squeezed through the trees.
