Labor Day Weekend is upon us all and this always starts the “un official” end of summer. While just taking a moment to reflect on my summer here in Greer, I found the most simple way to explain what my summer months were all about. So, presented below is a short poem written July 25, 2019 while I enjoyed a morning in Greer City Park. If you are local to Greer then, you know what beauty there is in this unique place. Feel free to leave a comment about your summer, “like” “heart” or share this post with others. I would enjoy hearing from you. So, here is my poem aptly entitled, “The Park”.
My breakfast in the park A great way my day to start
This peace stills my heart and sets a healthy mark
I need some time to “be” I have been so tired you see Just craving time with me and Thee
The summer has come and is almost gone; no regrets for what’s not done. God will surely lead me on.
Though I cannot sit here long my time with you will our song.
Like bottled hope this view I scope will be my joy; So that I have no time to mope.
God is good you see with all the world in front of me, how can I but believe in Thee.
Many birds around me sing sounds of nature they do bring.
Thank you God for my time in the park, a great way my day to start.
