Best Poem of Monica E. Smith

Give me a sapphire sky above my head
With stars to guide my way
An alabaster moonlit night
And the golden sun by day

Give me trees to teach of beauty and strength
Flowers in every hue

A gentle breath that whispers love

On which my feet may tread
But when this body breathes no more
Lay me down in earthen bed
