Blue Ridge Song
By John Cannon

So easy to be sarcastic,
so easy to be cynical,

itís become my reflex reaction
to so many people and events

and as I sit here
with cloud shadows
moving slowly across the blue ridge,

warm sunlight streaming down
between the puffy white clouds,

the breeze picks up a little,
carrying the first tart taste of fall,

and I find the negative assumptions,
the negative predictions

receding back
into their dismal cavern,

while a softening smile
lights up my face

and my heart

begins to sing.
