ONE DAY, LOOK NO LONGER HERE

One day
the Song of Solomon
shall swallow
the book of Romans
up into itself.
Then the beautiful cathedrals
will fill with trees,
the baptismal bowl
will become a luminous lake,
the holy aisles will be flowered paths
and birds will be quickly
admitted to the choirs.
Then the simple pulpit
of a country church
will become a great stone
upon which is everlastingly
written these words:
look no longer here,
for God is writing
his beauty
with a lover’s hand
upon the waters
of your heart.
