MAGIC

Magic is the sun rising high
in the eastern sky
to sink in brazen glory
in the golden west.
It's the secret guarded well
that daisies won't tell
as they nod their happy heads in jest.
Magic is the free
flowing waters of the sea-
gulls overhead
wings spread in flight.
It's a glistening star
viewed from afar
shining o'er the world through the night.
Magic is the slow birth
of sweet Mother Earth
from the seedlet to the rose's bloom.
It's a pattern without reason
for every changing season
intricately woven on
Mother Nature's loom.
Magic is the wild
carefree mind of a child
as she runs 'neath laughing skies of blue.
But, more importantly
at least, it is to me
Magic is the wonder
of my love for you!

    for every changing season
