(Aug. 13, 2022) —
Through the door of yesteryear and older dreams forgotten,
Step the children, Hope and Grace, from God’s own love begotten.
These tiny tots with shining eyes and laughter on their tongue,
Wipe clear away the trace of tears and make a new song sung.
The fairies stop and watch in awe these sisters dance and play,
Then blow a kiss on winged wish that happiness will stay.
Dream on, sweet royals, of your throne, this moment is your crown.
You were born for such as this. Chin up, and don’t look down.
Your court is at your beck and call,
These arms will never let you fall.
But should a dragon soon appear,
Look to God, and have no fear.
And find your strength in those around,
Who keep your feet on solid ground.
