'A Tiny Seed Of Love Was Sown '
Wake up, wake up, wake up!
by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen
Wake up to the rays of the sun!
Wake up to the new day of light!
Wake up to rain from the sky!
And wake up to dreams in the hearts!
See the hands of the Great Sower
that spreads seeds to the ground
nurtured by rainfall and rays of the sun!
See the tiny seeds waking up and growing
to the new and blessed October morning!
Both hearts of man and woman
wake up as tiny seeds from the soil
exploding in passion and romance,
and both cannot stay forever hidden
under the dark and mysterious ground.
Today these tiny seeds are fully grown
before witnesses of church, family
and friends; today they seal
their vows with a kiss and pledge
of love invincible and eternal.
