A bathyscaphe)into God’s great
Wisdom and attention.
Its ballast is a weight
Of justice (gold) and
Its buoyant air is charity
(Silver). What is law?
I am afraid of its severity,
As much as my mind can bear
And my imagination see.
And on this platforms rests
The light of love. What temerity!
I have lived it. It has traveled
Through the rivers of my veins.
And all the bitter is made sweet,
With doubled light upon the chalk-white lanes.
