St. Hilary of Poitiers

When I consider

how the stars

circle round

and reappear

year by year,

when I look

at the stars

that shine

in the spring,

the north star

& the morning star,

each one allotted

a different task

and service to perform,

then, although I do not

understand them,

I realize

that you, God,

are in them.


For today, I've cheated just a bit. Today's poem is Hilary's words, translated into poem-form. They're just a little too beautiful on their own for me to mess around.
