And singing, dancing, wild with joy

David sang

In thy light to see the light

 

There are meanings in this to be discounted and savoured

 

That all things posses a creaturely form

(The mind, by itself, cannot transcend this state)

Only revelation’s burning coal upon the eyes can see what must be seen

 

And yet I am that which I am

Creature but blessed in multiple ways

The moment’s grace and illumination my true delight-

Only then in all light seen in That light

 

Yet I may not presume

Presume to know the essence of the stone or the wave

Presume to know the dove’s true flight

Or the intrinsic nature of music
