DANCING ON WATER

(A DAYBORO CHRISTMAS)

We will dance on the water

We will sing in the sun

That is the promise

For Christmas has come

 

Mists shadowing fields

Open windows above

Where angels sing songs

To a great God of

Love

 

Weariness passes

Sun glitters the dam

While a dead tree shapes

The cross of crucified

Man

 

Paris bomb’s thunder

Rockets splinter the night

And in Dayboro Christ’s birth

Reminds us of

Light

 

We will dance on the water

We will sing in the sun

That is the promise –

The lightning will come.
