Into the galaxies of life
In golden space so deep

She floats from cradle to the veil
Beyond her milky face
And gives a whereness to the stars
Throughout all glowing space

Laughing child
. I give away
She comes back twice
. And so we play
The sun is in
. Her smiling eyes
Reflected in
. The distant skies
Between two hearts

Oh laughing child

which loving God

. did you dance
from a heart
. that gave up can’ts
. and picked a chance
from a tree
. that God had offered me?
. Thank you, smiling child . . .
