Earthly Treasures

  • A bough of apple blossoms
    Rain washed ‘neath blue sky
    A yellow tulip leaning
    Against a wall nearby
    A bluebird perched upon a bush
    Trilling a gladsome lay,
    A spray of goldenrod a-smiling
    And nodding across the way
    A sparkling April shower
    A rainbow lighting the sky
    A row of purple lilacs etched
    Against the twilight
    Of a sweet spring night,
    And over all canopy
    Of heaven’s starry light
    A group of little children romping
    Beneath a gnarled old apple tree,
    These are few of earth’s bright treasures
    To make life sweet for you and me

    By Maud Elinor Van Order
