I will pause in my busy day
To spend a moment with a butterfly,
Or watch the rainbow sparkle of a tear
As it melts into the crystal sea.
I will seize a bubble of wonder;
Find a world reflected, dancing
Light rays streaming from the clouds,
Watching white birds serenely glide from Heaven.
I will stand in the wild-flowered field
Turning with them in the wind, touching
Sky and earth, and mists of clouds,
That ride in rivers miles high.
I will speak to pebbles in the stream,
Whispering to them of secret dreams
Of dandelions and whooperwills,
Squirrels, who in meadows hop and run.
I will find a secret place
And fill it full of songs and praise,
Reach my cup up, with arms outstretched,
To receive more elixir from the Throne of Grace.
I will lift me up to rise with Him
Through dimensions mirrored, engoldened o'er,
And ride the Living Spirit where
All Life begins, in Love's so sweet and perfect Word.
