Entranced...






Entranced, beneath spring’s azure dome I bow
The bud unfurls upon the barren limb
And all the dormant earth is aching now
To unveil from its depths the awe of Him
Who shapes beyond our visage His intent
Immersing us in whispers heaven-sent

These are the outer fringes of His work
This filament of spring, anemic green
Compared to kingdoms far above this earth
A heaven filled with wonders never seen
Incomprehensible; we cannot grasp
The glory-land that waits beyond this gasp

Eye has not seen; no thought ever conceived
The things God has prepared for His Beloved
His Gift to everyone who has believed
Will be perfected then beyond this trove
Entranced, beneath spring’s azure dome I bow
And worship Him from whence all blessings flow
