A Perfect Day

          The wind whispers through tall pines,
          Robins build nests in maple trees...
          An Oriole sings it's sweet song,
          It gives my heart a squeeze!

          Lilacs, white and lavender,
          Sends forth a fragrance fair...
          Soft clouds kiss sunny skies,
          With beauty beyond compare!

          I hear the children's laughter,
          As I gaze upon green hills...
          I smell the fertile soil,
          As a farmer his land he tills.

          It's a perfect day to remember,
          As I think about our God...
          And all the wonders of His hand,
          This earth His people trod.

          What treasures await us,
          When we take the time to see...
          His priceless gifts of beauty,
          He sends to you and me.

          Cattle in lush, green, pastures,
          Where quiet waters flow...
          And the ever-blooming meadows,
          Here on this earth below...

          It makes me wonder about our future,
          When we ascend to heaven above...
          How can we take it all in.
          Our precious Savior's love!

          My heart beats a little faster,
          As I envision heaven's shores...
          And I hug His many promises,
          To my heart forever more.

          As the moon and stars begin to shine,
          In this quiet, velvet night...
          I know I've seen a perfect day,
          And thank God with unwavering delight.

It gives me a warm feeling in my heart to write poetry.  I am a "Golden Ager" shut-in and writing keeps my mind busy with something I've done ever since I was a child, and it's my way of sharing our LORD with who ever comes to visit.  Thanks for reading my poetry - I'd love to hear your comments.  May God richly bless you.  Send emails to:   EvaYoung @ SkyWriting.Net
