The Wordless Voice
The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; The world and all it contains, You have founded them.
~ Psalm 89:11
In Muir’s Wood
God who moves in the trees above
Whispering hidden songs of love
Restrain just now my busy pace
To know your spirit in this place.
No craftsman's hammer built this church
What genius might aspire to such?
By art, no pinecone made, nor even
The littlest twig or smallest heaven.
I go, soon busied in the time
Of corridors and humankind.
But let me carry in my shirt
a quiet nature's valentine.
