Quiet Blessing at the opening of the
Saturday night concert, 9/26/09
I am the deep pools in the moonlight;
Golden sunbeams by day;
I am shelter from the storm;
I am stars and planets cousing through endless skies;
I am the colors of the rainbow;
I am soulmate, love, parent, child,
The wind that blows,
Green hills and trees,
Golden sand and desert.
Hear me in the song of the bird,
In the whisper footfall of the hare.
I am every heartbeat,
The cry of the babe,
And the sigh of the old womans as she
bids a final goodnight.
Angels embrace me.
Without me the world is silent and cold;
The wolf in the night and the owl
on the wing call for me;
The ringing bell and the organ pipe,
Strings, keys, reeds horns;
Pipe and drum;
Thunder and rain;
