Godlight

We walked together through the autumn woods,
her hand in mine held fast in quiet grace;
we watched a yellow leaf fall from a branch,
and drift down slowly to its resting place.

A red-capped woodpecker was darting there,
driving its beak into a grey-clad tree,
and on a bridge we stopped and stood awhile
savouring joy in all that we could see.

And all the paths we walked that peaceful day
were like the years together on the Way.

And everything we saw fulfilled its call,
its place within the wider story;
and so our love was not too plain or small
to share the God-light and the glory.

And all the paths we walked that peaceful day
were like the years together on the Way.

And everything we saw fulfilled its call,
its place within the wider story;
and so our love was not too plain or small
to share the God-light and the glory.
