Aggie's Sanctuary
Story Poem

Along the countryside there stood a beautiful tree
The branches were perfect, and were waving with glee
 
***
Beneath the tree,  some wild grass grew  tall ,
There it  lingered  , in summer or fall .
***
One day, from another tree flew here , a papa bird glee .
It danced and sang and swang its tail on such a spree.

                                      ***

Not far away , wandered  a lone owl ,
Looking at the moon ,  it howled  .
 
***
 
In a night so cool ,
Said Papa bird to Mama bird ,
 " Let's go and play on a nearby pool ."

***

So off they flew to the pool ,  one before the other ,
As they flew there , they called out to one another .
***
 
On reaching the lakes , the birds ,  they sighted ,
Some owls big , beside the pool ,  they gathered
The birds were frightened ; even tho' the big owls meant no harm .
Away from the lake ,  they flew ; flew and flew in alarm .
 
***

 

The two birds in their nest did spy ,
At the brightening morning sky .
Soon the sun shone on the earth with power .
It was hot at this time of the hour .

                                                                                      

 
***
The day was  dreary and long .
Every where birds started singing their song .
One by one the animals disappeared to the deep groom .
And   to the sky and plants they made room .
 
                                                         ***                                                    
Soon sunlight gave way to twilight .
Birds , animals and people homeward-bound.
God is the creator of such a lovely sight .
To see it , be sure you are around.

***

Night approached  , though a bit of day still lingered on,
 Bats , owls and nightingales came out of their hiding place .
  Perched  on the tree trunk , an owl  hooted  so  forlorn .
  All creatures, ready to sing their even songs of praise.
 
***
 
At night a little angel , she appeared
Riding the air she collided with a star
The little star in pain did shed hot  tears.
Her lovely angelic face had  a scar .
 
***
 
Said the little angel to the star .
" Can you please excuse me for the scar ."
Said the star sadly ,"  now I am not pretty any  more ."
The angel said  , " I still liked  you like before . "
 
***
 
The little star and the angel, together they did fly ,
To where the moon was hiding
behind the clouds in the sky .
There , two of them played hiding and seeking.

                                                                                                          *
God bless heaven and the earth .
The angels , the stars and the rest. .'
God bless us all , have faith .
For Him, we must be at our best!
