Poetry of Kansas

God Is Here.

God is here! I hear His voice
While thrushes make the woods rejoice.
 
I touch His robe each time I place
My hand against a pansy's face.
 
I breathe His breath if I but pass
Verbenas trailing through the grass.
 
God is here! From every tree
His leafy fingers beckon me.
