Travels With Charlie: “It’s Easy to Call It a Miserable Day”
“It’s pretty easy on a day like this
To have trouble reaching a state of bliss.
When the air is damp, and the sky is grey
It’s easy to call it a miserable day.
But if you care to look a little deeper
And listen to the song of the early spring peepers…
Your eyes will reveal a world about to be born
With a muted palette and fantastic forms
As if two sides of a battle were drawn…
Awaiting the signal of a coming dawn
To rally together as one giant thing…
And create the newborn joy of spring.”
–Lyrics by Charles Paparella.
