A Glow Over Halifax

As we wade through tidal pools

And we wash the pain away

Let them dare to make us fools

Let them say that we’ve gone 

Astray

 

I can only see your back

But I know you’re smiling wide

There is nothing that we lack

There is nothing can stop 

Our stride

 

Hillsides overflowing 

Fireweed and thistles

Violescent glowing

Over it all

When you rise above the fray

When you recognize the signs

There’s a light over the bay

And you know it’s all by

Design
