I started writing the following poem in February, when we had a few warm, sunny days. As I listened to my first recording, I found that some of the lines (thinking of taking a walk, for example) had a swinging, sing-songy rhythm that was totally unintentional! It was a total God thing!
Here’s the original recording and the lines below.
I’m sitting in my comfy swing
In the open air.
Thinking of taking a walk
Oh what pre-Spring joy to share
As the Lord and I have a talk.
On this February day
Out in the sunshine I’d rather stay
Instead of wasting precious time
Stuck inside the house all day.
I love to feel the gentle breeze
And hear the wind chimes ring
On a beautiful, warm spring day
While sitting in my comfy swing.
So naturally I had to put this to some music, plus the outdoorsy soundscape you hear. I re-recorded it along with a jazzy tune I had originally arranged for something else, but it happened to fit the poem perfectly. Funny how that works! 😀
