956Re: "Have You" by W. H. Daniels
- Aug 1, 2004John:
I love sharing other poetry as well as my own. I often open a book
at random (poetry and other)and the words of this poem touched me,
so it wanted to be shared. I loved that it was written so close
to the time I came into this world ('46) and that W. H. Daniels
had the same thoughts almost 60 years ago as I have now.
Sending love to all,

> HAVE YOU?
> My friend, have you heard the song of a bird
> In the dawn of a morn fair and bright,
> With the dew on the rose and the skies all aglow
> Bidding farewell to the night?
> Have you seen a lark rise singing up to the skies,
> A song of pure sweetness untold,
> As he tells the whole world that day has unfurled
> And bathed all the hillsides in gold?
> My friend, have you stood in the depths of a wood
> With the breeze through the trees in your hair,
> Where the scent of the pine is a perfume divine,
> Found the sweetest of nature was there?
> Have you sat by a brook in a cool shady nook
> While the stream just gurgled along,
> And the butterflies there cleved the pure sparkling air
> While all nature seemed lifted in song?
> My friend, have you seen the broad ocean agleam
> In the calm and the balm of an eve,
> When the sea and the sun were just blending in one,
> As daylight was taking its leave?
> There are things for us here in this Godgiven sphere
> Untouched and above man's abuse,
> 'Twixt sky, sea and sod are the wonders of God,
> And each one is here for our use.
