Oh, that your eyes
May see the blue
Of skies
And you may know
The sound of rain
And hear the wind
Against the window-pane
Oh, that your heart
May feel the
Flying souls
Of flowers
Through the air
Blowing across
The hills and plains
Which like a prayer
Sink deep
Into the very soul
Of all things
Oh, Miracle-Child!
May your heart
And mind and soul
Soar upon
Inspiration's wings!
Towards God and Man
And Earth and Sky
Where holy kings
Have made the soul
A harp which sings!

    Love to you

  14. Amazing eyes in the graphic of the newborn face. Your poem is heartfelt and what we all wish for every child born. I so wish each child would be in a family who understands how precious that child is. Your words are from your heart and we are so fortunate you share with us.

  15. What a stunning poem. Are you the author? I am impressed. I found your comment about Laguna Beach, and wanted to thank you.

  16. Your poem is also a miracle - miracle of words, sounds, images.
    May all of your wishes come true to the miracle child!

    You should attach music to your poems; every song will become a Hit.

  21. Frequently I find myself saying, and then writing--what full-of-wonder is this post, it is the best I've read today. And then minutes later I wish to write on another's comments the same words.

    I realize now how blest I and all here ARE, who are allowed to read the finest of words, put together in the finest of expressive manner, by bloggers such as you...and I could name here a half-dozen others. It seems to me God has put you all here for us.

    Thank you also for visiting my blog, and writing in such a comforting and supportive way.

    Yes, every day is a blessing!

  22. Ohhh Beautiful!! I can identify so much!

    Thank You for the wishes Margie!

    for parents.

    from first line
    to last.


  25. Those two little beautiful eyes is the whole world! Hugs

  26. Amazing Aluminum!

    O God and Man
    And Earth and Sky
    And sunny Smiles
    And Happy Wiles
    O fruity Fruit
    And Horns that toot
    And Wind that blows
    And Silence mute;
    O Songs that Sing
    And bees that sting
    And bells that ring
    A sweet “ding-ding”
    And cheese that smells
    And bells that don’t
    Since metal things
    They Smell not Won’t!
