A small wren trills her morning song
as the wind gently caresses
the cedar boughs.
A small child gurgles in her sleep
as she dreams of innocence and peace.
Gentle puppies with their raucous song
simply await a master’s caresses.
The pine tree boughs
the canopy for your sleep
rest and dream of innocence and peace.
Buzzing gnats have a different song
their prickly feet quickly caresses
the birchbark boughs.
All around and everywhere
is the sound of God
