The Spring Chrysalis
(Another beautiful poem by my daughter, KimberLite at age 14)
And even the sun will wait
Awed by the stunning glow on your face
The wind will stop mid-air
So the leaves can stop and stare
The birds will walk instead of flying
The sharks will sink when you are gliding
Across the silvery crystal ocean
And now the world is silenced by your motion
Watch the duckling become a swan
Amaze the world with your breathtaking form
For you can tame the wildest rattlesnake
And walk on the waters of the largest lake
And watch the world blossom in your eyes
Greener than the trees bluer than the skies
The life of the dead now new and fresh
Welcomed by their own blood and flesh
