Hallowed World

GREEN and living. Sunshine, rain.
The soil. The spring.

My mind and heart lift up in joy.
The weight of winter. The dark
and numb dead cold
melt, dissolve, and are no more.

Come rejoice with me.
Come sing.
Come dance barefoot in grass
and dew.

Embrace. Exalt.
This chant, this ancient smile
of earth,
of life,

Of God.
