Is a glassy rainbow
I feel it in my heart
We are warming
Thanking you the Children of tomorrow
Thanking the ancient Mother
Who whispers Love into their hearts
The angel ancient mother we are all inside
Talking deeply into the canyons of love
We have for being
Only to play, bearing pain for one another
We are quietly wed with our lovers inside
Of the dancing rain
Breaking waves of kindness
To all that bleed with rivers in their eyes
All looking not to fear
The restful or the fiery inside
The smallest grace
To feel the morning fears
Upon the Sleeves of ours
Everywhere, where there are tiniest seeds
