Welling up to Eternal
Let the waters fill you to overflowing,
living springs that surprise you every time
with joy and a deep compassion toward yourself.
Let this peace rest on your head
like a patriarch’s hand in blessing
as I anoint you daughter, I anoint you son.
Let these springs welling up to eternal
fill every dryness in your person,
as you drink and become the beauty.
