Look with wonder on the world
And on the walkers in the world
Familiar and strange as if on God,
For gods they are, unknowing.
Look wonderful on dear ones.
Look on them dear and full of good
As thimble wine and broken bread,
As grove and garden careful grown
And sacred, sorry, bloodied stone.
Look well with wonder on your soul
And on the lovers of your soul
Familiar and brave who love as God
And better; for, unknowing
You are one and wonderful, they, too,
With love and wonder, look on you.
