Through dancing whirling singing stars
the resplendent sun wells
Your Smile’s every hue,
fondly casts the moon’s full view,

and sails a spray of diamond drops
with outspread wings
to join sisters and brothers
tumbling, skipping, and racing in wonder

to endless sea,
to unfold one face
and drink the sky
with heart-wide eye –

O indomitable Fire!
You spin us the journey
of jeweled fields, crystal coves,
hail’s shouting shade, and tender wool-green groves,

for ever embraced
in Your cradle-love
draped breath-long
in dazzling lightning rainbow cosmos
heart laughter song.
