i will not hurry

I will not hurry through this day!
Lord, I will listen by the way,
To humming bees and singing birds,
To murmuring trees and friendly words;
And for the moments in between
Seek glimpses of Thy great Unseen.

I will not hurry through this day,
I will take time to think and pray;
I will look up into the sky
Where fleecy clouds and swallows fly;
And somewhere in the day, maybe,
I will catch whispers, Lord, from
Thee!

-Ralph Spaulding Cushman
