Walk Slowly


You walk too fast
From here to there
The day is full
No time to spare

You fix your eyes
On urgent things
And trail through mud
And all that clings

You paint a smile
Upon your face
With body poised
You join the race

Walk slowly on
The path today
And gather gems
I cast your way

Witness spring
In small degrees
Stir the buds
On winter trees

See snowdrops weep in
Silent huddles
And rainbows arc in
Oily puddles

As wind tugs clouds
Across the sky
Watch snow swirl down
From way up high

My delights
Are plain to see
So cease from toil
Be still with Me
