He descended from the heavens like rain
To bless the land and help it grow
More animate in the living, that it might glow
In G‑dliness, not merely to regain
The Garden of Eden, but go further still.
After all, the garden was just a garden of
Something more essential; like the dove
Being a symbol of life more tranquil.
Elusive on the midnight lyre, the ear
If like the seashell rim, will resonate
The distant roar of ocean wave, and hear
A note of truth flow in, to contemplate.
Such as, the tallest tree has the deepest roots,
And where knowledge ends, faith yields
the sweetest fruits.
