April: Short Wisconsin Poems

everyday beauty
cedar tree in sun
near the garage
and a dove on the branch
by my study window

late April and
the garden turns
towards May
primrose leaves
near the door

last week in April
and music is new
bird songs

the last few days
still cold
continue to bloom

peaceful morning

peaceful morning
a prayer from childhood
still with me

early April
and warm enough
for rain

small study
and books to read
days with longer light

sometimes by sight
in my life of faith
apple trees in bloom

“Evening, and morning, and at noon”

Evening, and morning, and at noon,
will I pray, and cry aloud:
and he shall hear my voice.

Psalm 55: 17

From the post for Psalm 55 at POEMS FROM PSALMS AND NATURE.
