Barefoot in the Grass




I walked barefoot in the grass today
Wet and cool
A balm to my feet

I walked barefoot in the grass today
Freshly cut
A welcome respite

I walked barefoot in the grass today
Soft and coarse
Short blades, green and brown

I walked barefoot in the grass today
At sunset
Peaceful and serene

I walked barefoot in the grass today
All alone
With only hens and dogs

I walked barefoot in the grass today
Refreshment
Pure, simple and sweet



**I tried something new today and made a recording of the poem.*

(It takes a few seconds to get started once you hit the play button.)



As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.
For he knows our frame, he remembers that we are dust.
As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field,
for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,and its place knows it no more.
But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting
on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children,
to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.

(Psalm 103:15-19)
