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.
