A Flowering Ivy Vine

Once a flowering ivy vine
Grew along a garden fence.
It traveled, first, upon the ground,
Then proceeded upward hence,
Spreading it graceful flowers
Through the tallness of a tree.
...And there it sought the Sun it saw
Shining intermittently.
Inch by inch it flourished
"Til it nearly reached the top;
The ivy paused then to consider
...To go on or just to stop.
No choice seemed quite befitting,
So it curled 'round a branch,
There it came to a leafless opening
Where the Sun shone down and danced.
The ivy could, no longer,
Deny its want to see
Just what was calling to it
From the summit of that tree.
Upward it crept, with sudden strength
'Til the tree was nothing more
And there...
Found a Glowing Radiance
As it had never seen before.
The ivy paused, and glancing back,
Left its petals there,
Stretched out its tender, leafy arms
Embraced the Heavens fair.
