Poem: I Will Wait
I will wait till the birds sing
And tender leaves adorn the branches;
Till the sun’s rays adorn the top of the pines|
And roses crown the bushes;
Till the tits swing on the cherry blossoms
And the grass is dotted with pearl-like daisies.
I will wait till nature smiles
And the moonlight falls on the lilies;
Till shadows are thrown by the lilies on old walls
And the purple clouds sail in the sky.
I will wait till the robin nests
And the south wind blows.
Then will I survey the horizon
Looking far into the blue sky,
Feeling at one with Thee, O Lord of Beauty!
I will merge my soul in Thee
And feel unity with all.
