phrases

Phrases are so very true.
I have several ones for you.
"Out of sight is out of mind."
They say"Love is often blind."

You hear them say this every day.
"An apple a day keeps the doctor away."
"The apple doesn't fall far from the tree."
"The good things in life are free."

All these phrases make you clever.
Do you know "Better late than never."
Have you known and often heard.
So many phrases about a bird.

About the sun, a cloud, your heart.
Yes phrases can make you very smart.
I have a favorite one, I'll say.
My phrase is "You have made my day!"
