Life as such unexpected joys as these,
The dappled sunshine through tall trees,
The drifting clouds across the sky,
Such lovely shapes as they pass by.
The babbling of a woodland stream,
And pink roses on a hedgerow green,
A skylarks song as he flies up high,
And patches of bluebells like a summers sky.
The sparkling cadence of a waterfall,
And scent of honey suckle on trellised walls,
A blackbird in a lilac bush,
And the evensong of a missal thrush.
The arch of a rainbow after rain,
And blissful ease after pain,
The hidden treasure in a tiny seed,
And the kindness in anothers deed.
The beautiful sunset at days end,
And welcome sound of the voice of a friend,
How wonderful when a we can say,
I found beauty, love and God today.
