Two Poems by Judy Melnyk, Newmarket
great earth drinks deeply of the summer sunshine
And her being is bathed in the summer sunlight
Beyond the pasture over the green
The sunbeams fall upon it in a stream
And are absorbed into the texture of the earth.
One can see the life-giving light and feel the warmth Entering the core of the earth One can feel it as the land inhales And
the flowers drink deep and long.
There is the hum of summer in the air
The bird songs, the rustle of the leaves
And the whisper of swaying spring grass
It is the soul song coming from the earth itself.
A little of the flowers loveliness The
wind leaves for me A few gentle thoughts of their Beautiness and happiness.
The dullness and worry of the day's toil
The darkness of the cities
Are washed away clean by the wind
And the falling of pure sunlight
I'm beginning to feel the joy of life
And the wealth of people to me.
The summer is over
And once again the world is sleeping
Of all those people who toil
How many think of the beauty
And loveliness of the earth and life.
shuttered in towns and cities
With their colorless days
With ugly smoke clouds and gloomy buildings
Why do these people shut themselves away.
The inside feelings are so great It makes you
feel strong and good Life
be rewarding in so many ways.
The gloom has passed
The darkness has rolled away,
The veil which hung so long
Before the face of the waiting world
Is being lifted like the mist
That encircles my life.
This dark mist is
Fading away so I can
See the beauty of the day,
Beauty of people and life.
Changed is the meaning of life to me,
Deeper and deeper it goes
The future I look to,
It has great promise,
Not only for you, but for me.
