For Madeleine -- Engaged

Out of the egg the flight, Out of the night the dawn, Out of the bud the blossoming, From faithfulness fullness is born. They say we reap what we sow, But before we sow we plough; Out of a universal caring Is the mutual caring of now. Run in the golden sunlight, Scatter your silvern laughter, Strengthen the mutual caring And live happily ever after.
