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

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;

The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
