A Moment

Under the tree

Enter heaven

None too soon with hell outside

Rebellious matter spurning mind

Prunes anachronistic pride

To fall, but not like cherry blossoms

Here in amethystine light

The coral dome and glossy skin

Shelter every peaceful thing

Love, its Lord, and His delight –

Stay a moment peacefully

Outside are the chasms
