Treasure Island

Patricia Grantham

(May 27,1952 / Moncks Corner, South Carolina)

The Earth Sings


The clouds bursting forth with their cascading rain
Fields overflowing with the harvest of golden grain

The shimmering sun radiantly showing all of its glory
Mountains raising their voices just to tell their story

A moon that shines ever lighting up the darkness of night
Stars twinkling with brilliance oh! what a beautiful sight

Thunders clapping their hands aloud beholding with such glee
Lightning striking up in the air with a sound of sweet melody

Wonders of the universe breaking out with songs of love
Earths beauty and magnificence are heard coming from above

The rainbow flashing with colors across the misty blue skies
Just like music to the ears and with sounds that never dies

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;
