Wesley's Special Gift~


It was in the gold of Autumn's beginnings
In the russet of the Maple tree's leaves
In the backyard of blooming Mum's simplicity
Long before the cold of Winter worn sleeves;
It was in the piles- wind strewn
In the new bonfires- -all aglow
In the shapes of October's memories
In the reflection's that continue to grow;
Along the sidewalks of late Summer's August
Where rainbows met the sky
In this arch 'cross the Firmament
In the yesterdays of by and by;
In all that was well and good
In his words of genius poetic rhyme
Yes, it was in Wesley's brilliant hand
That i truly embraced the poetic sublime! ;

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Out of the bosom of the Air
Out of the cloud-folds of her garments shaken,
Over the woodlands brown and bare,
Over the harvest-fields forsaken,
Silent, and soft, and slow
