The Silver and the Gold

The silver and the gold mingle beautifully in this beam
The character of the silver seems like the experience
Of the old when it serves as wisdom, a connection with us,
A bridge to fling across the chasm into the world, a sense
Of relation and cooperation, to stand as it must
Within this light and airy space and to help to form the dream
Of this wonderful house, so it seems, the silver in this beam.

The gold and the silver mingle beautifully in this beam
The character of the gold seems like the warm glow of sunlight
Stored within the heart and revealed throughout a life lived with lust,
Like strength in a time of adversity, beautiful, bold, bright,
Ablaze in the world, a beacon at night, to stand as it must
Within this warm and loving space and to help to form the dream
Of this magnificent house, so it seems, the gold in this beam

The silver and the gold are fused beautifully in this beam
The interplay of wisdom and strength gleams in purpose fulfilled
Along the swirl of wood grain lines that nature built in hoary
Forests of its birth, along saw toothed patterns where it was milled
In the biting nurture which prepared it to tell this story
Within this light and loving space and to help to form the dream
Of this home, so it seems, the gold and the silver in this beam
