Five Senses

Douglas H. Mc Clintock 1934 (Sarnia, Ontario)

Seeing is believing is a quote I often hear.
Nature with all it's glory is number one .
But a woman's beauty, nothing compares to it so dear.
To see her radiance, never to be outdone !

Hearing wonderful things sets us in a mood
Music of all kinds tickles our fancy.
Thunder, rain drops, a loved one's voice to give us a clue,
All these sounds make us very happy.

To smell is something so very unique,
A woman's perfume is a treasure to beheld,
Her fragrance is her own technique.
She is in a class by herself, it is so told.

To taste all the wonderful foods we have to eat
Brings us great satisfaction to our taste buds.
Steak, mushrooms, onions and fries can't be beat
And maybe for desert a sugar donut !

The grip of a handshake gives us a sense
Of completeness, solidarity and a deal maker.
To hold your girl friend's hand is no pretense
The love you have for each other.

If we have all five senses in a life time.
We have been blest beyond measure !
To see, hear, smell, feel, and taste altogether
And add love , we have it made forever !
