Work of Art

This day is mine…
A canvas given me by God
On which to paint
My own design.
My palette is the world.
For color I will dip my brush
Into the soft mists curled
About the mountain crags,
And for the a brighter hue
I’ll chose the blue of noonday skies.
I’ll borrow from the sunset’s glow
To trace the firest pattern that I know;
And then, before the evening lies
Upon the land, I’ll bend my knee
And glaze the whole
With gratitude of heart and soul
To Him who gave the day to me!
