Quivira Hills

HILLS OF QUIVIRA

 
When daily tasks are through I seek your hills,
       Where I can pray in peaceful solitude,
And listen to the thrushes' flute-like trills
       That waft upon the wind harp interlude.
The language of your trees enchant my heart,
       I feel the touch of inspiration's wings,
I count each hour I spend with you a part
       Of happiness, revealing many things.
You comfort me, your beauty is divine;
       Your aisles are paved with neither brick nor stone;
I need no greater riches, wealth is mine.
       Quivira hills, I claim you for my own.

--Joy Comfort.
