Before the day is through
I long to spend with you
An hour or two of bliss,
With whispers or a kiss.
If still, or passion-filled,
Though they be chance, or willed,
My soul is sure to be
Each time enthralled by thee.

I signed a proof for publishing in a book, Eternal Portraits, on May 29,
there was only empty waste.
The LORD made the Earth and Sky;
He did it all without great haste,
So carefully, for you and I.
began - it was still Dark.
His Spirit moved across the Sea.
And then, at last, he lit a Spark -
A Day and Night for you and me.
was when He made the Sea -
One part above, One part below.
The Air between, for you and me.
A blanket warm of H2O.
was when He made the Land
Appear from underneath the Seas,
Showing Rock and circling Sand;
He also made the Grass and Trees.
was when He made the Lights:
The Sun to shine at Morning,
The Moon and Stars for Nights.
And Comets, to give a Warning.
was when He filled the Seas
With living, moving creatures.
He made the birds to fly, with ease,
To view these added features.
He had a special Plan:
He made the creatures of the Earth
That crawl or Walk, and then made Man,
Who was of priceless Worth.
was His Day of Rest.
He asked that Man should do the same.
He asked us all to do our best
To use this Day to bless His Name.
