Quietly Among the Trees In Wonder
Quietly among the trees in wonder.
I wish this were my fate, ever lonely.
Stoical standing there, never hunger.
Impenetrable leafy canopy.
Midnight moonlight shadows dance on a breeze.
How many stars now since last I counted?
Will there be many other times like these
when I am naturally surrounded?
Nothing may ever lift my spirit more
as this blue sky on God’s golden morning.
Her and I together, no one before.
None since, none after, we each adoring.
As one it was at first in the Garden,
as now I finally gain Her pardon.
