WHY I LOVE THEE?

I LOVE THEE O' LORD IN A MYRIAD OF WAYS!
WHEN YOU VISIT ME IN MY DREAMS, COLOUR
OF IRISES AND MAGENTA AND HUES-- AT LORE
WHAT AN HONOR TO BEHOLD YOUR MAJESTY!
WHEN I FEEL YOUR PRESENCE IN MY PRAYER,
NOT AN ECSTASY, BUT A VIVID RARE FEELING
AND CANDLE BRIGHTENS IN FLAMES OF FIRE
MY BELOVED HAS REMEMBERED TIS MORNING...
WHEN YOU SAVE ME FROM DANGER IN PLACES,
UNAWARE SOMETIMES OF THINE WORKS BUT
NEVER WILL IT HAPPEN WITHOUT YOUR HAND
HOW I LOVE THEE BECAUSE OF YOUR ESSENCE!
MOMENTS OF JOY, EERIE OF SADNESS WHERE
EVERYWHERE, THY POWER DIRECTS MY LIFE
ANYWHERE IN THE ISLANDS OR THE SEAS---
MIDNIGHT OR NOON OR EARLY OF DAWNS.
I LOVE THEE IN MY OWN BUT FRAGILE WAYS,
PRAISE THEE IN THE MORNING WITH RHYMES
FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING UNTIL
THE SETTING --- I WONDER HOW I LOVE THEE!
