I have found such joy in simple things; 
A plain clean room, a nut brown loaf of bread, 
A cup of milk, a kettle as it sings, 
The shelter of a roof above my head, 
And in a leaf-laced square along the floor, 
Where yellow sunshine glimmers through a door.

I have found such joy in things that fill
My quiet days: a curtain's blowing grace, 
A potted plant upon my window sill, 
A rose fresh-cut and placed within a vase, 
A table cleared, a lamp beside a chair, 
And books I long have loved beside me there.  

-Grace Noll Crowell

What simple pleasures bring you joy?
