Wednesday, November 2, 2016 see the marvelous...

"The invariable mark of wisdom is to
see the miraculous in the common."

— Ralph Waldo Emerson

the marvel of a golden leaf to fall
from that mighty tree bold and tall
the lilting melody of the song bird
within the love of heart be heard
these gifts of season and time
such be blessings of the divine
it is with grace and ardent PRAISE
that we endow our hallowed days.
