ANOTHER FRANCIS OF ASSISI, by            
First Line: The music of a stream made him rejoice
Last Line: I know for sure he listened to god's words.


The music of a stream made him rejoice
And brought a solace that all men must seek.
For him the roll of thunder was no voice
From mighty Heaven in judgment of the weak.
He knew it for the sky's own counterpart
To the mountain flood when spring releases snows
In a tumbling roar. He'd quickly find the heart
Of summer in the essence of a rose.
On throbbing prairie nights beyond compare,
When day long since had closed the crimson bars,
With moonlight gently balanced in the air,
He'd hold communion with a million stars.
And once beneath tall trees, in the song of birds,
I know for sure he listened to God's words.
