In Creation to See

When in the orchard
I said to the tree
Speak to me of God
A blossom blessed me

I said to the sunlight
Please send hope this day
And patiently waiting
The shadows went away

I prayed with the flowers
Oh, help me to praise
We turned to the light
Their petals they raised

My brother and sister
In creation to see
Through love of the Father
All one that we be

(loosely based upon words attributed to Francis of Assisi)
