Oh that my bones could sing,
That my entrails could dance in extravagant worship
That I could tear the shrouding skies apart!
How, in the light of This Light,
Do I forget so quickly,
And get fooled by death again?
Here there is no mundane, no dull negation.
Entropy is reversed, and the stars remember,
The moment that glory broke through.
The hamsters’ wheel was broken,
The puppets’ strings removed
And the angels couldn’t keep away.
In flesh like mine He did it
Turning history inside out
Giving faith its solemn reason.
The day death died.
