Ode to Elijah

Young Elijah

Before the dividing of days

Or the singing of summer or spring

God from the dust did raise

A splendid and goodly thing:

Elijah – a wonder from the land

Elijah – from the fertile sod

Torn from a wonderful hand

Formed in the image of God

But the life of man can be a sorrow

Elijah brings relief from pain

For his fun will last beyond tomorrow

And life with Elijah is not in vain.
