By Karen Deal Robinson
In midsummer, vines fill my window,
And the sun hides high above the eaves,
And can’t find the crystal I’ve hung for it.
In the long bright days of summer,
My window is cool, and green, and dark.
In midwinter, vines are bare,
And the sun peeks low beneath the eaves;
Only then can it find the crystal.
In the short, dark days of winter,
Rainbows dance in my room like stars.
So, I pray, in my darkest days,
Send Your light to shine through my spirit
And let rainbows dance in my heart.
