I Saw The Great And Mighty Wave

I Saw The Great And Mighty Wave I saw the great and mighty wave As it came, The emerald glistening of its heart, A chasing spasm under blue-lit sky Dawn's glow gave a twinkling start And in the mist doubt flew right on by! I saw the great and mighty wave As it came, The revealing of a newborn fawn, A mystery in Nature's golden sphere O' what glory rises in each new dawn And we mortals walk blinded in our fears! I saw the great and mighty wave As it came, The power of this world's dark abyss, A dream that withers on the vine Beauty in a rose, in a warm kiss Sweet honey, love, love on which to dine! I saw the great and mighty wave As it came, The emerald glistening of its heart, A chasing spasm under blue-lit sky Dawn's glow gave a twinkling start And in the mist doubt flew right on by! Robert J. Lindley, Rhyme, ( From the Inside, Peering Out )
