I See Infinity


I see infinity in the night sky,
Stretching forever beyond my mind.
Celestial bodies shine from on high,
But just what my eyes can find.

Beyond, beyond, the shining stars do dim,
Into the blackness of outerspace.
Somewhere out there I Can sense him,
I long tonight, to see God's face.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
