I heard God laugh;
And sunshine broke into a thousand pieces
To plunge into the hearts of men,
Earth pored out her singing into mountain’s crystal silences,
Trees pulled their ancient roots and danced for joy
Flowers sang, birds and bees understood
And stopped, in listening wonder:
Shuddered the old, old fears to vanish into living light
And man, set free at last from all the weariness of doubt,
Ran to gaze up into the eyes of heavenly reason,
In the sudden knowledge that in the true centre
Love breathes on life, healing and making whole.
God the begining, God the victorious end.
