My Dad wrote this poem one night after we had been visiting....thought I might share it with you guys, as I loved it and thought you may as well. (yes my Dad is a poet!) I'm not sure if this is where it belongs, or if I can even post it here, if not sorry, if so then enjoy!!!!<br><br>
Feeding<br><br>
I have seen the Artic snows and sailed the seven seas,<br><br>
Crossed the arid desert and stood among the jungle's trees.<br><br>
I've sailed along beside a Whale and heard a Lion roar,<br><br>
Seen the strangest animals, and birds by land and shore.<br><br>
I've dove among the fishes and watched a White Shark feed,<br><br>
Held Hummingbirds in my hand and fed a Chipmunk seed.<br><br>
I have stood among the mighty and sat among the meak,<br><br>
Watched them in their feeding with tooth and claw and beak.<br><br>
Many things I've seen and done but still I remember best,<br><br>
Sitting with a Mother with a baby at her breast.<br><br>
A scene so soft and wonderful; of peace and boundless love;<br><br>
Sent down from our maker who is watching from above.<br><br>
