THIS EQUATORIAL NIGHT

Warm breezes off the moonlit bay this equatorial night
The near-still waters gently reflect the crabbers' lantern light
Sparkling waves and sparkling sky so sumptuous to our eyes
The Southern Cross ablaze in the equatorial skies

We sit on darkened sands on this night of Easter Eve
Such an indelible memory these visions are to leave
And we hear the glorious sounds which overflow and pour
From a church packed with worshipers out to the opened doors

Strains of the "Messiah" well within our reach
Penetrate the salty air and saturate the beach
No song or harmony more beautious have I ever heard
And the resounding "Alleluia", more passionate than any word

If it were possible to bring you here to this humble place
I'd love to see the splendor reflected on your face
At the spontaneous grandeur of the sound and sight
As we sit upon the beach on this equatorial night.

This is beautiful, Elizabeth. I don't think this stayed on top long enough for anyone else to see it!
