Bless them all

I sat on the porch swing one day
Thanking God for everything bright and gay
 
A crisp breeze brushed my cheeks
Cruising her way through my hair
Excited strands ran after her
To make her stay, to hold her there
But euphoria can’t be bound they say
So she gamboled away
God Bless the little soul of hers
She made everything so bright and gay
 
Then the old sun with the all-knowing smile
Sprinkled some of his brilliant shine;
On the little droplets
Sitting on the green of the grape vine.
But the drops not absorbing the light;
Reflected their tiny rainbows for me to play.
God bless their selfless hearts
They made everything so bright and gay
 
The cradling swing played a happy tune.
With its creaking joint it sings.
The quarrelling sparrows turned dancers
To touch every note with their wings
God Bless these lively birds I say
They made everything so bright and gay
