Humble as a bird

I entered the garden
Like a humble bird
Looking for a song-
A song to sing

And there amid the petals
I heard an angels tread
A bee on the mantle-
Heaven fed

And there I saw the nodding cloud
Dispensing in the ray
A rainbow proud-
As any marching day

So sang my heart this poem
That entered in this joy
A garden for tomorrow,
A poem for today

This poem gave complete peace as after I have prayed. Very pretty picture - felt more than seen.

As I read your poem
My heart sings along with you
I roam the garden of peace,
I roam the heaven with you...

((( Hugs for drawing me straight into your world of beauty)))
This what a poem should do, trasport you into the world of the poet...
Love, Zoya
