DAY

Day opened wide her silver gates for me
and sent a golden sunbeam for my guide.
She tossed a bluebird into bluer skies
and poured a song in the grass along my side.

Day sprinkled flowers on the meadow's green
like jewels lying on a velvet spread
and hung ripe apples on the swaying trees
then turned the sunset skies to flaming red.

Day provided to be a friend to me, indeed.
She took away any sadness my heart had known
then gave me joy
and brushed her laughing lips against my own.

  2. Hey there, Margie! ...I almost wrote, Maggie. :) Well, if I ever do, sorry ahead of time! Loved the pet poem! We have a 12 year old black poodle and now a 6 month old kitty. I wouldn't know what to do if Cassie our dog died! I'd have to get another dog to fill her place! i am also already very attached to Emma our kitty, actually my sister's cat. She is the cutest!

    This poem was great too! You make me want to write poetry-I may start to attempt it, although, I'm not very talented in this area.

  4. Margie,
    Another beautiful poem. Your line "She took away any sadness my heart had known". So true, isn't it? That problems always seem better in the morning. What a gift day is!

    Blessings to you for a lovely weekend.
