Laura Jean Kelly
We love you, O flowers, wherever we find you!
And you, O birds, that through the green forests call.
We love you, sweet Nature! Yet, somewhere behind you,
Is hidden a Something that's greater than all.
We scarcely could tell when we started to feel it.
We know only this: that it always has been;
But now, the most artful could never conceal it,
Or prove it is not to the ones who have seen.
For we saw You, O Hidden - saw one tiny glimmer!
A ray pierced the gloom of our hearts' silent night.
We saw, in the stars and the rainbows, a shimmer
