Sing of the sweet sunlight of the soul,
Energy stored as goodness and as grace,
Vivid food for hungry mind and heart,
Enduring source of wisdom and of art,
Nourishment no fortune can replace.
The light of one illuminates the whole,
Yet giving light's a secondary role.

One first must light with love one's inner space,
Nor need the sun do more to play its part.
Each ray of light's the gift but not the goal.
