Joy for the day….
In response to a challenge from Madison Woods called FridayFictioneers. Inspiration was taken from this pic, provided by the challenger.
“Joy for the day”
“Come little Leaves”, said Wind one day,
“Rainbow is in the meadow, we can play!”
“Rainbow only comes after Rain
“Rainbow, Rain and Sun,
Hurry, Song has just begun!”
“Let us go then Wind”, Leaves replied,
“Join with Song, Rainbow, Rain and Sun in the meadow to reside!”
“Okay,” said Wind, “Here we go!”
Leaves rode Wind to the meadow below.
Welcomed by Song, Rainbow, Rain and Sun,
Wind and Leaves did arrive,
adding their voices, the meadow came alive!
The day grew short, Sun began to yawn, Rainbow faded,
Rain was gone, Wind subsided and Leaves floated down,
to rest on Grass and slept.
Moon and Stars came out to play,
Song continued softly through the night, writing a new refrain for another day.
and God smiled.
The first line of this poem is actually from a poem my grandmother taught me as a child and along with the pic, inspired my words. I have no idea what the name of the poem was or who its author was. I can only remember the first line. Permission to reblog as long as a link back here is provided.
