Questions Of Travel
by Elizabeth Bishop

There are too many waterfalls here; the crowded streams
hurry too rapidly down to the sea,
and the pressure of so many clouds on the mountaintops
makes them spill over the sides in soft slow-motion,
turning to waterfalls under our very eyes.
- For if those streaks, those mile-long, shiny, tearstains,
aren't waterfalls yet,
in a quick age or so, as ages go here,
they probably will be.

Maker Of Heaven And Earth (All Things Bright And Beautiful)
by Cecil Frances Alexander

All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.

Last Ride Together, The
by Robert Browning

I.

Since nothing all my love avails,
Since all, my life seemed meant for, fails,
Since this was written and needs must be---

Take back the hope you gave,---I claim

And it Was Sparkling

And how it sparkled!
While early evening sun came in slanting,
In intense burgundy golden rays, flaming.
Beauty blooms bounced at west window,
And colors were flashing!
In a summer turned hummer-honeybees.
Varicolored blooms grace evening- so new,
Just as pearls in green grass-morning dew!

The Green Archway
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

A verdant archway, a long tunnel of trees,
With deep sunset colors filtering through,
In advance of cream moonlight treasures!
Birdsongs, whistles and cricket calls glide,
As evening drama opens amidst greenery.
Before night soon cascades tenderly down,
On a day like others, for beauty renowned!

An Ordinary Day
by Evelyn Judy Buehler

into peach sunshine
from maroon mist at daybreak
flower shows begin

a million hues gleam
in gardens woods and meadow
sky is lost in sea

trills from the treetops
brilliant birds in green shadows
