True Colors of the Earth
Solemnity of sky all day
Night clouds of pink and lace of stars
One love you give, and so I pray
Gold promises and holy hours.
Fresh garden flowers, breath of dew
Bright silvery moon, white host for you.
Green cabbage fields, brown boots in mud
Orange carrots, shaped pumpkins’ feast
Bright tray of harvest, all from God
Herb cream, purple cakes, earth’s best.–
For you my love, an ivory shell,
Red diamond ring, a towering bell.
Our hopes beside the lake so true
Blinking ripples, gleam as your eyes —
What joy to hearts, love hails your crew
Your heart, one love to God suffice.
Rainbow teas, the lake’s a cup
Sweet nectar rolled in waves you wrap.
True colors of the earth abound
Notes heaven sing: white nights —
Mint trees and grapes in vine, on ground
Earth paints a blast, God’s lips delight.
Cotton clouds, rain candies, now
Thy Kingdom come, pure love a vow.
