|"Revelation" ©Mary Montague Sikes|
A new heaven and a new earth,
There is wonder in it all.
A hill of riders on white horses,
Alleluia and praise lift up.
Revelation comes for this star
And all that grows around it.
Strange and frightening for some
Yet comforting, complete, and real.
Our knowledge of mother earth is small.
Wise men look to the heavens
And learn in tiny portions.
They glean from little that they see.
A new heaven and a new earth.
Will new stars and angels instruct us
Or will old ways return?
What is the truth of our revelation?
