Siesta-song





Earth is like a frozen casket
Covered in a shroud of snow
Earth is like a flower-basket
Filled with violet under-tow
Earth is like a still-life painting
Sparse, the tint from Artist’s tray
Earth is like a garden waiting
While green takes a holiday
Earth is like an open chapel
Roof of sky and latticed limb
Earth is like Bethlehem’s stable
Where we come to worship Him
Earth is like a feather pillow
Earth is like a star-strewn deep
Earth is like a blue lake billow
-ing with roses fast asleep
