A Poem

 by: Albert Laighton (1829-1887)

They are autographs of angels, penned

In Nature's green-leaved book, in blended tints,

Borrowed from rainbows and the sunset skies,

And written everywhere--on plain and hill,

In lonely dells, 'mid crowded haunts of men;





On the broad prairies, where no eye save God's







 May read their silent, sacred mysteries.




Thank God for flowers! they gladden human hearts;






Seraphic breathings part their fragrant lips

With whisperings of Heaven.



 All photos of orchids taken in Hawaii.
