BLESSINGS OF THE NOONTIME SUN
a poem by Alice B. Clagett

Blessings of the noontime sun
To the tribes of earthbound ones.

Bless, thou legions of the light,
Bless the armies of the night.

Blessings of love,
Blessings of light,
Blessings of joy to the earthbound ones.

Greetings of hearts open wide
To those whose great delight is pride.

Greetings of deepest joy
To those of skillful ploy.

“Michael Fights Rebel Angels” (2)

Oh my dearest sons of man,
Let us greet that other band
with hope, and faith, and love of God …
Tho their feet be oddly shod.

Blessings of the noontime sun
To the tribes of earthbound ones.

Greetings to Michael of the Earth,
Remembering his noble birth,
Soon Soon Free to find his place
Among that Archangelic Race.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
