Perhaps if You Lay Your Head to the Ground, You Can Hear that Sound of Hope

In the area of orchards and sun
where the clouds are a welcomed sign
the heat beats down upon the soil
and the tomatoes pray for a summer rain

in the place of depth and blue
where the atlantic meets the sky
The greedy ice claims another trophy
as the unsinkable sink below

In the fields where a giant stood
who mocked the weak and shook the ground
the smallest man with the greatest courage
struck down the monster with rope and stone

Where humanity placed the savior upon a cross
and the crowd was so easily swayed
the rock was rolled and laid to the side
death could not conquer Him after all.
