Morning Sun at Beechwood

When the sun is up in Spring,
step off the tram at Beechwood,
the stop after Ranelagh,
or Cowper from the other side,
and sit- inside
the steepled church.
Watch the light illuminate,
the stained glass,
and watch the story unfold,
The story of stories,
window by window,
left to right,
in colour, appropiate,
to our life,
and see the advice
written on the window pane,
redeeming Balshazzar's feast.

Then around above
the altar wall visit
with your eyes
how many Irish saints
have seen this
bright illumination
and in the side chapel
Joseph holds the child,
whose story has been
calmly seen from
over right,
with Mary and the Angel,
begun in bright
as the Spring sun rises.
'And let it be done'.

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
