BEAUTY
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

I hear the joy of living in your song
I see its joy when you run
Through dark wood and pastures wide,
I find joy in your beauty throughout
Seasons of Spring and Summer
Winter and Harvest,

The sun warms the tree as the little snake
The deep seas as the human heart,
The moon shines silver beams on wings of
Geese
And the back of the little deer that stamps
Its feet,

Rains freshen the meadow that hums with bees
And flowers and butterflies color the woods edge
The mists in the valleys kiss the tree tops
And shelters the creatures from harm
With its thickening veil,

Golden are the days of my living for my riches
Are many in the mysteries of Nature,
She is God's Holy Creation and kin to my flesh,
She is kin to my Spirit and sustains my
Life,

Beauty are you in many forms,
In many habitats...
For your Creator is wise
And wonderful
Loving and pure......
