Grail of Grateful Gladness



 It's a drippy morning, but stunning still!


Color cascades, gray-blue-yellow
Over heaven’s wall
Morning, like a jocund fellow
Metes time’s madrigal

Gifts too manifold to mention
Pour from grace-gilt grail
Summer’s streams in green redemption
Over hill and vale

Slow thy hurried wish and worry
Lest thou skimmest bow’rs
Where man’s Maker, rich in mercy
Mentors us with flow’rs

Touch Time’s yoke of season-splendour
With love’s humble awe
For its tokens, swift and tender
Yield to nature’s law

Not Want’s futile sigh
June attunes the heart to wonder
At God’s kind reply
