The Swift

Swift sky

I look through the window

I see the open world

A golden glorious creation

Abundant garden of heaven.


Above in the crystal sky

Soaring with eternity’s angels

Tasting the morning sun

Flying into vibrant light.


Set me free like the Swift

To glide on tranquil breezes

Drift into consciousness

Lost in paradises freedom.


And then in time return

To feast on the fruit of blessing

Refreshed from the harvest

The joy of the winds glory.
