in a manger

nature | poems | religious

it so happens to be
the incline of eternity
a rose garden no stranger
planted hydrangeas
fish swim free likened
to ponds of birds the swallow
hurt in hollow words
the evergreen shadow
over earth the magic fan
that shades her name
as wind and rain
upon the plain of evermore
I ask for sunshine cool in weather
fortuitous waters sweep
in fountains parks and green
the milestones of peeps
where after all she takes the call
that answers something deep and all
the revenue that rage fell through
was never intended to upset you
as ever was a fairy dust
to move a mountain or two because
I love you more becomes the day
and kneel beside your heart today
to ask forgiveness for my thoughts
that faults deliverance in wilderness remorse
so wild keen the smiling of
a dawn to deem her rising sun
the where of been
with no regret to give up yet
I ask you with so much love respect
to think of me with no upset
the magic never left your side
I dream a dream
grateful for your kindness
thankful for your wonder
lightning and thunder
found in a manger
in my mind.
