The eastern sky yawns, the sun begins to arise;
A crimson tinted dawn before my sleepy eyes.
Gray squirrels scamper up the towering old oak tree;
Chittering, chattering, oh what sights they must see.
Earthworms digging soil catch an early bird’s eye;
Ducking into the ground, just as the red bird flies.
My old calico cat has captured a field mouse;
She plays games with it before returning to our house.
Red ants prepare for winter never resting once;
While grasshoppers play away the coming months.
Caterpillars sip the dew which came overnight;
Shortly they will be in cocoons all wrapped up tight.
The horned owl now asleep in an elm tree is wise;
He dreams of tonight when he prowls the darkened skies.
Mockingbirds warble heavenly, musical tunes;
While bluebirds sing sweet notes on sunny afternoons.
A Golden retriever is taken out for a walk;
His old master stops at a neighbor’s house to talk.
Paperboy arrives to deliver the newsprint;
Postman gives out the mail that others have sent.
A car whizzes by barely missing a large deer;
The doe crosses with the herd when the road is clear.
Mama bear has brought her cubs to explore for food;
A dog comes along, they all run into the wood.
My eye is drawn to my flower garden where I hear a whirr;
Flitting oer my pink begonias is a hummingbird.
Monarch butterflies visit the fragrant rose tree;
While bumble bees gather nectar so joyously.
Lord, thank you for our life created by Your hand.
Your majestic splendor shows all over this land.
Whether flora or fauna You have made it clear;
You are the Great Creator your children revere.
