Oh Glory

Oh Glory

How you delight there

Spectacular divine

You dazzle me

I cannot say

How layered in frothy light glow

I marvel still

Breath-taking stand

Ecstatic to catch sight of you

But know when gone your magic truely remains

So treasured beyond all knowing thought

I mark thee with a heartfelt sigh.
