"In Desert Places"
(Sat. 07/22/06 08:43:20 AM; 131 words)

Random Poetry List LVII God has a way of making flowers grow. He is both daring and direct about it. If you know half the flowers that I know, You do not doubt it. He chooses some gray rock, austere and high, For garden-plot, trafficks with sun and weather; Then lifts an Indian paintbrush to the sky, Half flame, half feather. In desert places it is quite the same; He delves at petal-plans, divinely, surely,....

Three by Madeleva Poems by Sister M. Madeleva, C.S.C. White Peace The whiteness of the moon is on the world, Sleeping and beautiful; Across the blue remoteness drifts and clings The wandering whiteness of a single cloud. One passionless mountain lifts its face to heaven, Wrapped in white peace and very far away. To the quick bosom of the earth is pressed The fragrant whiteness of a little flower.
