How Beautiful You are

How can I look at you
Without renewed desire?
Yesterday unborn, but now
You keen a virgin fire

How fair your un-flawed form
How perfect your kind face
From ether region you extend
To touch my touch with grace

And do you sigh a bit
To know that I will braise   
The unsoiled fabric of your robe
With my intended praise?

Poised on the brink of you
I pause amazed and awed
For somehow in your smile I sense
The magnitude of God

How beautiful you are
In gown of gold or gray
You forgive my past and come
To me, oh brand new day

While driving hubby to work this morning so that I could bring his vehicle back home, I was awed speechless at the beauty of a new day's birth!
