THINGS I SEE



BLACK CHERRY TREES
SET AGAINST A COTTON FENCE
CHILDREN WEARING CANDY
LAUGHING AT THE WIND

GOLDEN BIRDS FLYING
IN SILVER SKIES
SINGING NOTES OUT
OF THEIR WINGS

GREEN GRASS OF EMERALD
RISING LIKE MATCHSTICKS
IN THE MOLASSES MORNING
OF WAKENING DREAMS

I HAVE NOT MISSED THE BEAUTY
IT LIVES IN MY HEART
LIKE A CHILD IN IT'S MOTHER'S ARMS
THESE TOO ARE THINGS I SEE

TOSSED SALAD ON A REDWOOD WORLD
MUSHROOMS IN A FRYING PAN
HOT BREAD ON A CHILLY DAY
LEAVES ON A STILL POND

LIKE TINY SHIPS FROM HEAVEN
COME TO THE PROMISED LAND
COME TO THE HEARTS OF PARADISE
WHERE GOODNESS LIVES

THESE TOO ARE THINGS I SEE
AND FEEL
AND LOVE
AND NEED
