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 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 flamimg red.

Day proved to be a friend to me, indeed
She took the sadness my heart had known ...
Then gave me loveliness in place of tears ...
And brushed her laughing lips against my own.


  1. I'm a day person too, and receive joy throughout the day in small things and in nature. Lovely thoughts in this poem. Day is indeed a friend.

  2. Oh Margie, such a beautiful expression of gratitude. I felt myself enjoying this day with you anew. Thank you for its joy.
