Natures Night - Poem by Robert Edgar Burns
A full moon has just been covered
By fresh clouds that drifted by.
The clouds now shine like paintings
In the gallery of life's big sky.
A soft breeze is gently blowing,
Cooling off a humid night.
The whippoorwills are peacefully calling,
Which means everything is now all right.
Life giving rain that has been showering
As a blessing coming from above.
To break up a drought we have been knowing
Can't last as long as the Fathers love.
I can breathe the fresh aroma
Of the dew and rain on grass.
But I know this moment's fading.
Nothing forever was meant to last.
Soon the sun will be slowly rising.
I'll watch it's beams stream through the trees.
All alone with my thoughts feeling,
This vision was only meant for me.
But He shares with every woman
And again with every child and man,
The rain, the moon, the sunshine,
Whether His children, or those He damns.
