The jeweler

Holds out the black velvet cloth,

And thousands of diamonds

Of every size,

Glitter and gleam and hold my eyes.

Then I see

The jeweler’s careful clockwork,

As the celestial bodies circle

Their appointed paths

With unfailing precision and unending beauty.

There are some

Who say there is no God,

But I know there is

a Heavenly Jeweler

For I have seen His gems.
