Blue & Gold

Blue & Gold
Hope Curran

Blue is the ocean
That flows into motion
Movement of our soul
Through water, make us whole
Baptized in the pool
Redeemed in waters cool

Gold is refined
Defined by its glow
The process painful and slow
But oh the lasting glory
That is woven into this eternal story
Gold that reflects the light
Blinding us with its bright
Not yellow but gold
Shimmers and never grows old

“Let there be light”
We go forth with humility and might
A light legitimate
Universal yet intimate,
Giving glow to the shadow
Morning comes from the night
That makes us shine so bright
Golden and refined
Gauchos is how we are defined
