SKY

Hail to you, sky so blue
with glint of sunrise shining thru!
Stars grow dim and disappear
when the coming day is near.
On the far horizon lines
glows the red of ancient wines.
Little cloudlets curl and twist
merging with the morning mist.
Soon appears an arc of fire
growing fuller, rising higher.
And, swifter than our thought divines
his arrow strikes the mountain pines.
And now his gleaming shaft extends
out to where our vision ends!

Sky, your wondrous light has come!
All day long your ethereal dome
haloes every earthly home.
The clouds may hide you for a while
we see them pass, and meet your smile.
Beneath your dark, mysterious blue
moves all life we ever knew.
And in each varied circumstance
of dull routine or sweet romance
a cloudless sky invokes a charm
protecting like an encircling arm!

O sky, so distant and so deep
thru life's long day your vigil keep
enfold us when at last we sleep!
Hail to you, sky so blue
with night's gold stars all shining thru!
