A Noble Craft
By Alistair Korda '24
You are the reflection in the eye
Of one that remains out of all control
A love hidden in shadowed words
And glances but belonging to
No one but You. For You are all
That which I lay my eyes upon
The streams, the waters, and the
Tears. You are all the soft floating
Smiles that she gives to me in
these quiet wonderful times.
These moments of love
Even if one sided bring a new
Kind of contemplation. That
What I am is all You are and
She is just the same. All the world
Built by grace, the glory of the
Morn. A fire of a saintly kind
Burning like eyes lovelorn.
Singing her words yet coming
From You the holy holy kind
Of fears and joys that come
With the noise of love in
The time of God.
This piece is part of a series asking, “Who is God? And what is He like?”
This Fall, we invite you to tell us how you understand the character, nature, and identity of God through poetry, reflections, art, or more!
