28 Jun

The clouds gather
Chasing off the breeze of summer
One drifts and then another
Rumbles of thunder
I shudder

The rain drops piti-pata
My heart’s beat: ‘palava’
Like pieces of China
Hopes of peace and laughter

Out of the storm breaks out the sun like a song
Sung only by a throng
A throng in believe
That conceive
A song of reprieve
Salvation receive

The sun’s smile, accede
Dark clouds, recede
Rejoicing proceed
Out of my heart. I won’t cede
To pain nor these tears heed
I shall smile though I’m still in need
Of love. Let my heart bleed
In hope indeed!

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil.
