Guiding Spirits
Tap, Spirit, Tap
Spirit show me signs today
That you are guiding us on our way
Ahaa, tap tap tap, rattling window pane
Chuckling drops of summer rain
Whoosh whoosh whoosh, bowing apple trees
Messages wrapped in cool gentle breeze
Chime chime chime sings old grandfather clock
Time to write, spirit you rock
Cluck cluck cluck, fussy orchard's chicks
Faintly amused at squirrel's tricks
Chirp chirp chirp a Robin comes to rest
Red badge of courage on his tiny breast
Scatter scatter scatter, shadows flee morning light
Demons of dark take grudging flight
Sharp prisms of light dance from amethyst's ray
Messages all, indeed spirits guide us today
Jotted down while idly looking at the  Orchard through the window at the chickens today - yes, the clock did chime, and the summer breeze teased the apple trees
