Child of light


You fascinate me, oh child of light
Blinking little lights dancing around you
Know that you cannot hide behind friends
Your intelligence is a gift from God

You fascinate me, oh child of light
Colors of the rainbow know you
Know that you cannot hide behind strangers
Your emotional strength is a gift from God

You fascinate me, oh child of light
Plains of light know you
Know that you cannot hide behind enemies
Your spirituality is a gift from God

You fascinate me, oh child of light
Children of light know you
Know that you can no longer afford to hide
Your material wealth is a gift from God

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
