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.
