I suspect God has a trampoline
And a sunshine machine.
But that’s not all;
Pray tell, a bell,
A river of tumbling stars
For a waterfall.  
For Love comes boldly
As beauty bouncing,
In rollicking sunshine,
Pure peace pronouncing.
The dancing breeze of laughter
Sets the bright bell swinging,
Until in shimmering delight
The celestial river of light is ringing,
A cascade of crystal freedom singing,
Oh, see the Great I AM, is jumping for joy
With every ageless girl and boy.
I would be Christ’s fool“We are fools for Christ’s sake.” (I Corinthians 4:10)
God’s frog and kangaroo,
To live for Joy alone with You
