ON THE TOP OF THE HILL

I stood on the top of a hill
at dusk, when all was still . . .
Heaven seemed to be so near . . .
If I should pray, God serely then would hear.

I watched the dusk fade into night
and soon the stars, like candle lights . . .
were gleaming in the sky . . .
as though guiding, each wanderer passing by.

  3. Margie, G-d will hear you anywhere
    There is no special place for prayer
    He hears and I believe He guides your hand
    In creating your poetry wonderland
