A Legacy of Love

Sample Poem

     Take Time

Take time to breath
the fresh crisp air
that sweeps upon
your morning stair.
Take time to smell
the sweet-laid dew
that sits before you
moist and new.
Take time to feel
the dawning sun
that tells you morning
has just begun.
Take time to hear
the robin sing
a beautiful concerto
upon rising.
Take time to thank
the Lord above
for all the gifts
he has bestowed on us,
and as you go on your
merry way,
thank the Lord
for another day.
