A Time so Short and Bright

From the narrowest sliver of space

Caught between roof and tree

The moon is shining brightly

Through my window to me,

So bright, so fair, so proud it shines

For the briefest glimpse of time

Just as the other afternoon

The sun came shining through,

Through my window a slender beam

And through a tiny crystal

Suspended in space to gleam

Casting rainbows on my wall,

By grace of star and satellite

And slivers of space by day and night

My world was blessed with light

For a time so short and bright.
