Make Your Heart an Earthly Paradise
|Make your heart an earthly paradise|
On which, above all, you yourself depend.
The only Eden is the one you tend,
Hoping that the sunlight will suffice.
Each holds within the heart a paradigm,
Remembrance of a love that was the sea
'Ere one felt the wound of you and me
Slicing through the tides of that sweet time.
Do, then, recreate such love within,
A gated garden in a world of sin,
Yielding grace grown only in that clime.
