no greater than the rising and setting sun
no greater than the waxing and waning of the moon
no greater than the ebb and flow of ocean tides
be this breath of life
be the shadows that cast gold
ever a close of day
ever an awakening anew
quickened be this heart
eternal be this soul
the shadows that cast gold.
