Heaven & Earth
There is wonderment more in the Kingdom of Heaven
Than all of the glories on all of the Earth –
The colours are brighter, the music is sweeter,
Forever and perfect and never in dearth.
There is beauty and love in the Kingdom of Heaven
Far greater than ever we know on this Earth –
But strange how the holy are nervous to claim it,
And dawdle below to delay their next berth.
There is marvel enough in the Kingdom of Heaven
To fill up a thousandfold worlds with its mirth –
Or so it is promised, and why should we doubt it,
Inspite how we cling to all life all it’s worth.
But I can wait long for the Kingdom of Heaven
To sup on this world from its poles to its girth.
There may be a paradise waiting in Heaven,
There’s surely a paradise thriving on Earth.
