Weekly Reflection - July 16, 2018

With Apologies to Emily Dickinson
Sister Donata Renz

So that is how the sun comes up,
A ribbon at a time,
But that was in an eastern land,
Not in our western clime.

Here morn is swift approaching,
The world is bathed in mauve,
Which quickly turns to hyacinth
And then to glowing gold.

The sun engulfs the prairie,
The fields of wheaten gold,
The pastures and the meadows,
Its warmth and light unfold.

And when the day is waning,
And nearer is the night,
A brilliant fall of fire
Is poised in golden light.

My eyes just glimpse the beauty,
the dazzle, brilliant bright,
for there before my very eyes,
It's dropped completely out of sight.
