Grand candelabra of magnolia
Illuminate small garden, hedge enclosed,
As if some visitation from afar
Were sent to render flora, all, exposed;
Resplendent hues, enriched by pristine white,
In dulcet harmony create a tune,
The most discerning eyesight to delight,
Idyllic for reposeful afternoon.
Salubrious vernal sun its rays dispense
With unselective equanimity;
Imbibe kind Nature’s sheer benevolence,
Embrace its prodigal felicity.
There is so much for senses to enjoy,
If only we would care them to employ!

Daylight hours lengthen,
Nocturnal ambles ending….
Open windows wide,
Hear the dulcet dawn chorus,
Hail the early rising sun!

Let It Be!!!
The placid maiden schooled in rural lore,
Committed to the care of years fourscore,
In Trust, embraced her Fate,
Her God to adulate,
Devoted to her unborn evermore!
