Homesick

I remember days from long ago when life was but a high
We traveled in my little car across the countryside
There was no destination as we went on this long ride
We just enjoyed the scenery especially in fall

New England is a gorgeous place when autumn comes about
The leaves turn brilliant colors that always gave my heart a shout
Whenever autumn comes each year I look with suspect doubt
That the colors here in Iowa are redolent at all

God’s canvas is a mighty thing each day I look around
From sunrises to sunsets He fails not to astound
But in the autumn colors I’m set on higher ground
Their brilliance in New England makes me homesick every fall

Bright Hues

In all of my years I’ve been watching
Both to the East and the West
I marvel each day
As the sun makes it’s way
The heaven’s display their best

Then I look at the trees in autumn
As the changing of seasons goes on
From green to bright hues
The most colorful show
There to watch with a sense of awe

As I study these things I can’t help
But think of our awesome God
Who gives us each day
These brilliant displays
He really must love us so much
