Darkness to Light from Song of Solomon

LightFlower

Blessed are the men and women
Who are planted on the earth,
In your garden.
Who grow as your trees and flowers grow,
Who transform their darkness to light.
Their roots plunge into darkness;
Their faces turn toward the light.

Song of Solomon, translated by Stephen Mitchell
