Heaven's gem

August 22, 1994|By Jane Lippy

Today God unlatched a window

In heaven where He presides.

With one breath it sprung wide open

To reveal a jeweled tide.

He plucked a sparkling

emerald shell

From the dazzling, crystal sea;

Flung it across the universe

In a carefree moment of glee.

A fragment cascaded to Earth.

Where it burst upon the scene,

Splashing a myriad dewdrops

That bathed the land in summer green.

"He makes me to lie down in green

pastures."

------Psalms 23:2

Jane Lippy writes from Hampstead.
