Dainty feathered ferns Robed in emerald cloaks Thick like the stands of pines And laurels crowding The earth scented trail Woodsy and wild Like dancing leaves in Autumn Thrill at my gaze Wondering hastily o’er The darkness of this olive blanket Exposing the fresh cinnamon Hues of the ground Trembling through rich brown limbs In a gray that plays On the senses, lending grace To the laughing winds As they praise our Creator A cerulean sky Softens the buttery yellow Of the sun who smiles Gentle and strong On the passage of time Who reflects on the dawn Alive with song, rhythm Soothing the senses Erasing the last of a Winter Who yearns to hold onto its dread Darken the nature who awaits Sprouting daffodil and tulip Buds of sparkling hope Waking up our hearts with joy Music of the moment Kindness played on the surface Of a hungry thought Spring silences the snow Wiping away even the reminders Of a dark cold that feels More prayerless than atheism As it prompts the serenity Of a moment spent deeply moved By forest and feeling Coaxed alive by a rising sun Or a crocus bloom Soon the land will smile Awake and alive Sensations of praise Whispered on the mind Who remembers to thank God For this moment, this day The way that He blesses us With each new song Covering the heart with a tune Of peace, prayer and grace A tune of love so amazing
