Hope Chest


It seems the only flawless thing
This spinning wheel of sky
So here beneath its constant passing
Ever waiting I

Held safe within a chest of hope
The heart I have to share
Come closer friend and look inside
I have it over here

And there displayed for all to see
The artist's verdant heart
And laid about for all to view
Its thought provoking art

So marveling at the works on view
Their soft emotions shimmering
That floated from the chest of hope
Poured from the heart there brimming

Remember then this wisdom shared
From sages grey and coy
That all the world’s inside of you
And it’s set free by joy

So as the sky and sun wheel on
And constant pass above
Keepsake within your chest of hope
The verdant heart of love
