Face the day

Oh summer's breeze,
you lift my heart,
and blow away my tears,
while carrying off sore memories,
of events in recent years,

you brush the leaves,
of old oak trees,
and sweep the dust away,
as fresh dew sparkles on the grass,
to greet the break of day,

help me to step on dewey ground,
with head held high and strong,
to face the future, greet the sun,
though the days seem harsh and long.

  Cool poem, Lou! It flows so smoothly and the words are lovely. Yes, sometimes, the beauty of nature really can help wash our cares away! This truly is a very enjoyable read! Keep it up, Lou!! : )

  "though days they may seem harsh and long."

Lou, you could leave out "they may" from the above line, and the rhythm scheme would be improved; also, it wouldn't change the meaning.

I think adding a "the" would help, so
Your last line would then be

"though the days seem harsh and long."

  There's a sentiment for you. And no, my Olympic medalist status is pending their recognition of reading poetry as a world-class sport. I just lucked out on timing...

I like this piece; it's short, but it gets the idea across with little need for more. Keep that style, and you'll rule this place.
