From Heaven's Mercy-wheel



 It is good to give thanks to the LORD 
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;  
To declare Your loving-kindness in the morning 
And Your faithfulness by night...
Psalms 92:1-2



From founts grounded in air
The lilt of daylight brims
And overflows in gold and rose
And hallelujah hymns
Contagious is the hope
Cascading from yon deep
Arise, arise, for how time flies
Toward its final sleep

This settlement of dust
For all its ache and groan
Compels us to revel anew
On this; earth’s stepping-stone
Mankind can only reach
His plebeian demands
Bear witness to a kindly New
Refilling fumbling hands

From founts of patient grace
Morning majesty pours
Across this dirt of toil and hurt
From Today’s far-flung doors
Soon too, this door will close
And never break its seal
Come, where dawn flows in gold and rose
From heaven’s mercy-wheel
