Today gave to my waking world
a gold and crimson dawn . . .
so splashed with splendor that the sight . . .
I scarcely could look upon.

And in the dewy morningtide
I heard a bird's cry . . .
of utter joy, and saw him wing . . .
across the western sky.

Before my eager, quickened sight
a flower-form unfurled . . .
and lent its matchless beauty . . .
to a green and amber world.

My grateful heart beheld a way
to lift a load of care . . .
that in a silent loneliness . . .
a friend of mine had to bear.

Twilight gently blanketed
the weary world in rest . . .
and stooped to kiss the joy . . .
that slumbered at my breast.

Today I learned to love each hour
nor asked tomorrow planned . . .
and lo, at last, I drift toward sleep . . .
its key within my hand!


  1. So peaceful, so graceful, so soothing.

    You are soo talented dear Margie.

  6. Good one Margie :) Thanks!

    Have a lovely weekend!!

  7. lovely

    my thanksgiving is good...
    how yours?

  8. It's so challenging to love each hour and to not have tomorrow planned. Once we let go of those constant thoughts, plans, agendas, then we can finally have peace. Something I totally wish I could do. The last part of this poem was so profound- it definitely struck a chord with me, because I need to learn just how to do this. Thanks for inspiring me, Margie!

    Lots of hugs your way!!!

  9. This is how it should be unlike the way we keep cursing each passing hour.

  10. beautiful, margie... sweet and uplifting.

  11. When no-one else can understand me
    When everything I do is wrong
    You give me hope and consolation
    You give me strength to carry on

    And youre always there to lend a hand
    In everything I do

    Thats the wonder
    The wonder of you

    And when you smile the world is brighter

    Thats the wonder
    The wonder of Margie

    i speak for all the guys here and Kesh1

  12. Sounds like you are living in the moment, which is all any of us really have, this moment.

    I recognize most of the faces here from Andrew's.

    I hope you're having a great holiday.

  13. Very nice! You are so good with rhyming!

  14. I've got to wonder darlin, do you keep a pen and paper in hand? I just can't fathom how you have all this pouring out of you. Honestly, it's simply amazing.

  15. You sooth people with your wonderful words..

    Did some one told you that you are a wonderful person ?? whatever..

    I am here to say that you have a wonderful soul, Margie.

  16. Today I learned to love each hour
    nor asked tomorrow planned . . .
    and lo, at last, I drift toward sleep . . .
    its key within my hand!

    I love that part!

  17. Pretty good again......

    Due to official responsibilities, I may not be able to blog or visit yours that often. Please bear with me. :-(

  18. Today I learned to love each hour
    nor asked tomorrow planned . . .
