Rural folk lightly dance

For generations footfalls make

Hands held as one in line

In embroidered costumes fine

Celebrations such as these

Far from war’s destruction hand

Children chasing in between

Run gleefully on the green

How pride and jealousy

Can fellowship’s joy destroy

Armies immune to sentiment

Reduce to ashes settlement

Reduced as well to beast

Rewards of life so hard to earn

Far removed from inward urge

Of perfection’s expressive surge

Pride and jealousy joining hands

To generosity and love transform

Golden nature full and free behold

No space for pride or jealousy’s hold


O Lord keep me in Thy protective care far away from pride and jealousy’s destruction. By Thy transforming power convert these energies to Thy service. Grant that I may always join Thy dance constructing and adding to steps and notes through Thy creative grace.
