A Little Girls Prayer

by
 Grant me the moment, the lovely moment
That I may lean forth to see
The other buds, the other blooms,
The other leaves on the tree:

That I may take into my bosom
The breeze that is like his brother,
But stiller, lighter, whose faint laughter
Exhoes the joy of the other.
Above on the blue and white cloud-spaces There are small clouds at play.
I watch their remote, mysterious play-time In the other far-away.
Grant I may hear the small birds singing the song that the silence knows.
.
.
(The Light and the Shadow whisper together, The lovely moment grows, Ripples into the air like water Away and away without sound, And the little girl gets up from her praying On the cold ground)
