One day, from another tree flew here , a papa bird glee ,
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 .
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!
