FOR YOU AND ME
The sun is climbing over the hill,
And all of nature is so still,
Yet birds are singing from bush and tree,
Singing always for you and me.
Now as I sit beside this calm lake,
It’s nice to watch things come awake.
A gull flies past so effortlessly,
Such beauty there for you and me.
A loon is swimming right over there,
It’s mournful call flows through the air.
There, a mighty eagle now I see,
Such majesty for you and me.
Upon the water the sun does shine,
How do people complain and whine?
Why not take the time to stop and see,
The wonders there, for you and me.
