The middle of the Rocky Mountains

A Flawless Magician set the mountains all in place
set sun and moon and stars up in the sky
to keep us dreaming on the how and why
in our eternal quest to see His face.
On earth, the beauty of the sea and land
was painted by a Master Artist's Hand
in Mysteries too deep to understand,
its smallest cell and pattern
most magnificently planned.
No matter how we might abuse His gift,
between humans and nature, such a rift,
nature shines her brightest beauty nonetheless,
her bounty spilling onto us, to bless
When God made earth, He gave His very best,
scattered a universe of stars o'er all the rest.
