I think that I shall never see,
A more magnificent scene to me,
Than skeins of geese in pure flight!
'Tis truly an awe-inspiring sight!
'Tis a wonder of God's Creation,
That they fly in perfect V formation!
As they glide thro' autumn's lowering skies,
I harken to hear their haunting cries!
I stand in awe as they pass in review,
Blessing my soul as all too soon they fade from view.
