The eyes gleam when they behold
A drove of birds in flight
A field of nodding sunflowers
All dressed in their best gold

Oh, how I quiver with the smell
Of the early morning dew
The fresh and deep scent of earth,
Casts on me a nameless spell

My feet, they lead me thro’ the trees
To the top of a nearby hill
And I gaze into the valley below
Mercy, wonders never cease!

I raise my head and high above
Is the radiance of the skies
I’m blinded momentarily
My heart is filled with love

My soul soars in unmeasured delight
My hands are stretched out wide
I’m breathless and I cannot speak
In the presence of God’s might.

For who can explain the marvel
Of God’s creation blest
Lo! Life is another miracle
No-one can e’er unravel!!!

        This is as beautiful a poem as “All things bright and beautiful, the good God made them all” that we read in our childhood.

        • Loretta says:

      • Melwyn says:

        Till the end if the 4th verse I thought you were wandering down the path of Elisabeth Browning, then the last two verses told me No it was the wonders of creation stirring up your soul. Keep breathing GODS wonders, for they truely fill our souls.

        • Loretta says:

          Thank you so much, Melwyn.. All my poems, including this one, have been written 15 years ago and some I’ve written now, just a few, during this deadly and difficult period…

          Yes, God’s mercies, His goodness, His love, the brilliance of His creation, are seen, perceived, and marvelled over, every single day. He deserves all the Glory we give Him and more. We are so undeserving of His love and yet, He has given us the highest esteem and importance among all His creation! Mind-boggling, isn’t it?

          Thank you so much, for your wonderful response.. God bless.. πŸ™πŸ€©

          Will read Elizabeth Browning’s poems.
