Epiphanies come and go; what remains
Plays upon the harp strings of the heart,
In which an inborn harmony sustains
Passion, pleasure, patience, purpose, art.
How might beatitude come every day,
A bit of the bright ecstasy of Heaven?
None need do more than tarry by the way,
Yielding to the grace that all are given.
