AN EAR TO EARTH
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

To earth I bend an ear
While she sings each season's song
From her roaring winter winds
To birds singing all day long..

I love to hear the whip-o-will
Adrift through moonlight's haze
The gentle days breeze
See the setting sun's blaze...

An earth with golden crown
All aglow with autumn hues
Summer birds leave your yard
The trees their leaves will lose...

The crunch of crusty snow
The ice upon the lake
The deer tracks that you find
On that walk through woods you take...

The many sounds of summer nights
The thunder storms that come
The sand and spray at beaches
And the honey bees that hum...

The wink of tiny fireflies
The harvest at season's end
The crisp bright blue of autumn skies
The cool nights earth winds send...

I love to hear her springtime birds
The air is filled with sound
The life that is God everywhere
Within earth's blue sphere round....
