Sometimes we overlook what is in front of us. It is easy to dismiss the
words of a fool. Paying attention is the way to realization.

Awesome poem. How often we do not notice how quickly life changes around
us: either the changes in the seasons or the news of yesterday.

I like this poem, especially the last line. Most people tend to not notice
the little things around them. I think everyone should make an effort to.
Being attentive and observant makes life more interesting, even if all you
notice differently is a patch of half-melted, dirty snow.
