~ A Place Called ‘Solitude’ ~

Tucked away quite privately
Among the stately pines
Stands a Chapel near a lake
An awe-inspired design.

Seeking restful solitude
From cares and trials of life
O' such joy and comfort found
Relief from toil and strife.

Reflections in the waters deep
Dance across each wave.
Stained-glass windows cast their glow
A rainbow jewel inlaid.

Butterflies rest from flight
On flowers red and yellow
Watching feedings of nectar sweet
Leaves all senses mellowed.

Eagles soar on wings outspread
Hunters of the sky
Seeking food for their young
On skills they must rely.

Once inside the chapel doors
Praise upon my lips
A grateful heart lifts songs to God
For all His splendid gifts.

A place called ‘Solitude’ indeed
No other name could be
For by His Grace, He brought me here
All fears He has relieved.
