Litany

I hold the splendid daylight in my hands

Inwardly grateful for a lovely day.

Thank you life.

Daylight like a fine fan spread from my hands

Daylight like a scarlet poinsettia

Daylight like yellow cassia flowers

Daylight like clean water

Daylight like green cacti

Daylight like sea sparkling with white horses

Daylight like sunstrained blue sky

Daylight like tropic hills

Daylight like a sacrament in my hands.

Amen.

George Campbell (b.1916), Jamaica
