For you the Earth shall bring forth greater glory,
Opening itself to your delight,
Returning joy for joy and gift for gift.
The seeds you sow shall sing their way to sunshine,
Yielding fruit and flowers, grain and grace.
Earth, like us, responds to an embrace.
Ill-made for instant bliss, it takes its time,
Giving generously to those who give,
Healing psychic wounds, restoring blight,
Turning love to life with patient fury.
