May I Be A...

May I be the rising sun
for a day long,
with my order I will make
blossom the sweet lotus,
never be hot, never be tough,
I will try to be
A sweet memory for all;
A sweet memory for all.

May I be a twinkling star
for an evening sky,
in a bloody background I will
appear with half light and half shed,
from the running clouds
I will peep out
The earthy style of life;
The earthy style of life.

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
