Ruth Moyer Gilmour

Take time to smell the flowers,
ANd hear the bird's sweet song;
Take time to watch the rippling stream,
And the coming of the dawn.

Take time to watch the bluebird
Flash his colors on the wing;
Take time to hear the crickets
In the evening as they sing.

Take time to see the rainbow
Stretch across the sky:
Take time to say "I Love You"
Before another day goes by.

Take time to watch the sunset
At the closing of the day,
And then take time to thank the Lord
As you kneel to pray.
