Do you have things that squeak?
And wake you up so you have to peek.
We have floors that squeak and doors as well
Both squeak so much that I want to yell.
We have cupboard doors that squeak and, to tell the truth,
We also have teeth and bones that creak and squeak.
So to close my mind to all that din,
I go to my piano and practice a hymn.
But, wouldn’t you know as soon as I start,
The keys start squeaking and I fall apart.
I am going to take up the drums!!!
We often take for granted the beauty that surrounds us
But if we take time to open ourselves to the awesome
Wonders of what nature has created, we begin to understand.
The purity of sparkling creeks bordered
By giant pines and rambling wild flowers.
There are the snow capped mountains where you are able
To experience the lost time of the glacier period.
While walking deep into the forests, we see the redwood
Trees standing majestically and rising every upward.
Walking on a lonely beach with the ocean waves
Tickling your feet, we come across shells of great
Beauty poking their bodies out and lying on the soft sand.
We hear birds calling to each other and, at times,
It seems to be their own harmony of joy.
Sometimes, we see beautiful rainbows arching
Across the sky after a rain storm.
If we are fortunate enough to be in the right place,
We are able to see so many blinking lights of the stars or maybe
a fiery comet speeding through the sky and then disappears.
We have been given a multitude of great gifts and
For the wonders nature has provided, we are grateful.
