God's First Secret


Do you know
What God told me the other day?
I am telling you
In top secrecy.
If you breathe a word to God
I shall never tell you anything again.
Remember, be careful!
Needless to say,
God has shared with me
Millions of His sacred secrets.
Now I shall share with you
His first secret:
At the end of your journey's close
Your epitaph will read
'An unfulfilled tear of God';
My epitaph will read
'A fulfilled smile of God.'
Remember, be careful!
If you breathe a word to God
I shall not share anything else with you;
No, not even the precise hour
of your God-realisation
Which God told me
Only this morning
In top secrecy.

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
