Exquisite is the Stillness

tree-flowers

Exquisite is the stillness found in spring
As nature wakes to every living thing—
…… Fresh fields of poppy, phlox, and columbine;
…… Thick tree trunks all adorned with climbing vine.
…… The peach, the plum and pear with blossomed bough,
…… The rich black earth once furrowed by the plough;
…… The stately aspen and the evergreen,
…… Bosk brambles where sweet berries lie unseen,
…… The morning glory wanders all around,
…… Bold-bladed, daring daffodils break ground—
And as I stand here warmed by dawn’s new rays,
I marvel how such silence sends Him praise!
