Soul’s birth in morning soil,
Spring sprouts from ancient toil.
First steps—firm hold to fingertip,
Grace flows from humble village to ocean ships.
Learning, spinning—webs of life,
Heavenly rays over world-weary strife.
Burdens heavy lay,
Under heat of summer day.
Teacher, prophet, counselor—grief overcome,
Waning light, shortened day—whispers a weakened sun.
Age lines, gray hair, gathering fate,
Autumn harvest—profits wait.
Family tree beyond the page,
Humble grains on winter days.
Souls rebirth in Heaven’s glory,
Sings of God’s unending story.
