Cathedral Window

Emblazoned on cathedral wall,

Artist’s hand in sponsor’s Hall

Creates the leaded, crafted glass

That deftly lets the sunlight pass

Through shards of heavy tinted panes,

But turns away the autumn rains.

Bird’s Eye View

Perched above a golden floor,

Persian rug designed by Fall;

Golden thread on golden shore,

Draped by sunlight’s twilight shawl.

Peaceful thoughts beset me here,

Peaceful dreams in golden form;

Shimmering, they gather near,

Where bird’s-eye view keeps musings warm.
