I found silver today in the cadence and trill
Of the gay little song of the whippoorwill,
And gold at the edge of the crimsoned west
In a sea of clouds as the sun dipped to rest.

Turqouise and rubies, amethyst, jade,
I found in the setting that God had made,
On hillside, in valleys, all summer they grow,
In winter kept safe in a casket of snow.

Diamonds and pearls I had lost for a while
I found today in the flash of your smile --
So my heart is answering the cadence and thrill
Of that gay little song of the whippoorwill.
