When the echoes of the night Follow in dawn’s wake They cast long ,heavy shadows Upon the sun beyond the blue lake.
Lingering in these deep recesses, A tiny, jeweled star awaits its turn, One night, when the moon is away, Then brightly will it burn.
Not knowing in its naïve dreams The danger that lurks behind the clouds If the moon is swamped by darker forces Can a little light burn more bright?
Like hope in a living heart, a new moon over the rocks Like a smile that shimmers with glistening tear drops The star shines with all its cosmic might, A determined flame, blazing away to be a sun tonight. ————————————
