“Capture the Fine Things,” Ensign, July 1978, 37

Capture the Fine Things

I think of the nice things

in life that we share:

the stars in the sky,

the freshness of air;

the colors of autumn

and a tree on a hill;

a bird in the springtime

with a worm in its bill;

the capture of friendship

and understanding within;

a baby’s first step

and the challenge to win.

These, only small things,

seem the biggest to me,

for we can’t control them—

they just Susan Gebhardt come to be.
