Soft Lamp Lighting The Way

What a delightful vision
you are 
lighting the path
along the way
as I rest presently
here today beside you.
Were you there in Assisi
lighting the path
and greeting the monks
at the chapel door?
Tell me more.
In all the world
could we ever count
the colors of green to be seen
 around the brown of the olden days.
This is my first vision of you
Italian Arum Lily bloom.
Do please stay.
 Did you hear the thrush today,
  whistling through
 this morning dew to welcome you?

Now I will sing
 in my own quiet way
for the joy of bird songs
in the garden today.
