Aurora Lullaby

Brightness rims the horizon.

Brightness fills the bowl of night.

The Big Dipper gleams through a scarf of red silk.

Poles of pale light hold wide the tent of sky,

the curtain drapes of velvet dark.


Bring me the last scoop of the moon.

Bring me a star-song, a taste of wine and wintergreen,

a dipper of aurora light,

here in the cathedral dome of darkness

under the drift of living stained-glass panes

all lit up by the breath of God.
