The Whisper in my Ear

O heart don’t lead me astray
See the trees that line the gardener’s way
Their view is the sun and soil
Along with our common toil

O heart don’t lead me away
See the birds flying south
As ribbons in the wind
Together they brace for the rain
Pushing and pulling their train

O heart don’t lead me today
To the cold only with the spruce for cover
Away from my lover’s arms
From the warmth of his breath
Together with other
And those who are here.
The whisper in my ear
That awakens from sleep
The wonder of love in the far and near,
Is a child who sees beyond facts
Who treats facts as truth in joyful play
Who sees wonder in it all through the love of all
Who lights up with delight for the grace
Of wisdom in our earthly space
