Fourth Floor

Directions: Begin on the ground floor.  Climb the stairs you have climbed most mornings for five years. Don't trip as you read the school paper or mentally go over your lesson plans. You'll be out of breath by the time the fourth floor is in sight, so stop to rest before you mount the last flight. Consider the way the sunshine falls in from the skylight, and the precise grace of so many wooden angles.  Think, "I never noticed how beautiful this was." Wonder what else you have missed.
