a charming companion

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

marigold in the sunny window

bringer of all things simple and domestic

leave your peace with me

your yellow and orange blossom 

your pungent scent

cheer me as I keep my home

tidying the kitchen - washing the breakfast dishes

and when at evening I turn at last to rest

gift me with your charm once more

when I rise at morn.


You adorn the year with your bounty;
your paths drip with fruitful rain.
The meadows of the wilderness also drip;
the hills are robed with joy.
The pastures are clothed with flocks,
the valleys blanketed with grain;
they cheer and sing for joy.

Psalm 65:12-14
