A Chalice Lit in a Time of Planting
And the people
walked uphill
to where sheep had prepared
the soil for pines
and set a chalice burning
and lifted songs
and words of praise
while they built there
a meetinghouse
and in it said together:
‘Let us plant good works here
and let all that the people do as one
flame bright from this place.’
Charles Butterfield

In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too-rough fingers
Of the world. ”
Langston Hughes
