Sublime Gift


No line would ever have been composed
With so much passion, devotion,
Enthusiasm, inspiration, pure love,
If it hadn't been God's Mercy,
His Grace and Bounty!

Divine power's manifested
In manifold enchanting ways
Sending the Sun brighter
Overwhelming this soul-
Sunbeams from a pole.

Shining through images of Nature
From unique trees, chirping birds,
Sweetly-scented blossoming flowers,
Songs of joy, angelic melodies,
Powerful feelings, eternal memories!

A journey of spiritual growth
Along with love, truthful delight,
Even an enduring daily plight.
One couldn't realize another attitude
But send for good our gratitude!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
