It’s All Around Us--By Erich J. Goller--United States

It’s All Around Us
( Anaphora)

From the all the things near or far
From the light of the evening star
From the sunshine that swells the grain
From the blessed refreshing rain
From the special unique of human kind
From the sparks that come from the mind
From the promises of  early spring
From the natures beauty it does bring
From the salvation to calming peace
From the quiet things that bring release
From the eternal life and love
From the heavenly path that leads above
From the life upon the wonderful earth
From the embracing mothers love at birth
From the summer that must surrender
From the autumn with its colorful splendor
From the twilight’s purple glow
From the wonders the sky does show
From the morning, noon  and night
From the sunshine to the moon light
