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.


  1. I felt like watching a beautiful movie.
    (my blog had been lost for a while,thats why I could not visit here daily)

  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.

  3. This is wonderful, Margie.

    And hey, it's Princess Kai's birthday today! What a great day to write this inspirational poem! :)

  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.
