The Nurturing

Sweet child,

delicate as a captured

note of windchime,

your spirit

is sent to be nurtured

by the fresh air of truth,

crystal and transparent in the earth.

We breathe a pureness

in your presence, your warmth

and light, and pray

as we look beyond daybreak

that time and love’s craft

shall be enough to gather

the lyrics of you and compose

a noble poem unto our God.
