Child Dancing, Heart’s Delight

Since we just got back from our, well, I'd say weekend, but it really
was just a day & 1/2, away. I'm going to leave you with a poem that Jennie, over
at A Lady In France sent to me shortly after David passed away. Enjoy.
I'll be back tomorrow.

                Child dancing, heart's delight
		Petals floating, happy light.
		Angels waiting, face benign,
		“This small child is one of mine.”

		Fragrant blossoms, fresh with dew,
		Princely garland over you.
		Tinkling music, a fairy's laugh
		Leads the frolic down the path.

		Mighty fortress sound, secure,
		to shelter children coming here.
		Wooden doors lead to the hall;
		I know this one! I know them all!

		Happy voices, “Come and eat!”
		For you, there's always been a seat.
		A room, a hearth, a forever be
		With forever views on acorn trees.

		Calmly playing, heart content,
		waiting til my family's sent.
		Bright eyes twinkling, King divine!
		“This small child is one of mine.”
