Your Gift (challenge #11)

Your Gift (challenge #11)

the world for me to see so differently
crocus yield to daffodils, the tulips thrill,
blue skies of feathers fly, pause to sing
fresh melody, mates frolicking familiarity,
life sprouts, gleaning green with growth
from Winter sleep all living wakes

from here to ever, all to touch,
all to see, all to hear enriched
ordinarily miraculous now knows
in brilliance shows your presence
clearly radiant for me to see

e'en though the earth beneath you've gone to sleep
you live this world for me I'll always keep


A folk singers songwriters song from 1957 made popular by Peter, Paul & Mary with a 1965 release.

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
by: Ewan MacColl (written for Peggy Seeger)

the first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
and the moon and stars were the gift you gave
to the dark and the endless skies, my love
to the dark and the endless skies

and the first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
like the trembling heart of a captive bird
that was there at my command, my love
that was there at my command

and the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
and I knew our joy would fill the earth
and last, till the end of time, my love
and last, till the end of time


I learned this song in my teens & it lives with me today.
