The Still Great Egret

http://www.waterlilies.org/photolog/corpus-christi/


I saw a Great Egret standing on
a post this dismal day.
~
His white feathers shown bright
against the grey and gloomy bay.
~
The wind circled around the post
taunting the Egret to sway.
~
But the Egret stood silent and
still, moving neither way.
~
The rain poked the quiet Egret,
but not a feather did stray.
~
I wondered why in a fierce squall,
the poor Egret would stay.
~
God whispered, "Stand strong the storm,
and my Glory I will display."
~
The sun squelched that vexing gale,
and the Egret soared away.
~

I second Crissy's vote - more poetry. Your vocabulary is so varied; I love reading rich words.
