Radiant Philosophy

My heart is singing. It has found release

And feels the healing glow of inner peace:

What joy to sense that every kindly deed

Returns a spirit-blessing for my need;

That when I lift one thought above the clay

About my shoulders is a star-strung lei;

I plant a flower in the barren sod,

It climbs to glory and I walk with God;

I light a candle for a questing soul,

It gleams within my own to make me whole;

I tune another's burdened heart to sing,

My own is lightened through love's offering;

I smile and tears become as jewels of dew--

The sun I bring to others warms me too.
