Recorded by poet

I can only perceive so much beauty
As my health permits
When I am sick
The world is sick
When I am recovering
Every scene is brightened with optimism
This creek shines with green-gold sun
Like the veins of the lapis 
So prized by the wise
I have been awestruck
At this scene before
Today, I am getting better
The memory of such wonder
Stirs in me fondness
In time, I will feel that awe once more
