‘Christ and the Cosmos’

The cosmos is not a gearbox,
Turning forever with grim precision,

Nor mere matterhood, protons and neutrons
Cleaving and sundering as they would.

Life is not a strand of little letters
Arranging themselves ever better
At the behest of hoary Thermodynamics
Or man’s craftwiseness.

Life is a miracle!

Horses in their fields
And sun-beams falling through tree-leaves.

Life is a miracle!

The sacrament of husband and wife
And the Church as the Body of Christ.

Life is a miracle!

Godhood and manhood in one Person,
Manhood taken up into Godhead,
Mankind and all the creation
Flooded with the Holy Light of Christ!

Life is a miracle!
