HEAVEN IN MY BABY'S EYES
Two eyelids oped, and lo, the heavens' ope I saw,
And, like a twinklin' star God's smile reflected there.
Two lips did part and through their curve,
I breathed the breath o' heaven.
Two wee arms raised and circled me
With wondrous love; an armor, oh my God.
Two hands, rose-tipped, like winged things
Seem beckoning me, back back close to Thee.
Two feet have trod the newsome day.
Oh lovin' God, keep watch!
The earth is mine! Two dimple hands have given me the key
And Heaven is mine! but for the touching of its magic gold
The gates would ope and I might see, but why?
Oh why? when these two eyes be oped to me?
