Infinity is present in each part

A great ring of pure & endless light
Dazzles the darkness in my heart
And breaks apart the dusky clouds of night.
The end of all is hinted in the start.

When we are born we bear the seeds of blight;
Around us life & death are torn apart,
Yet a great ring of pure & endless light
Dazzles the darkness in my heart.

It lights the world to my delight.
Infinity is present in each part.
A loving smile contains all art.
The motes of starlight spark & dart.
A grain of sand holds power & might.
Infinity is present in each part,

And a great ring of pure & endless light
Dazzles the darkness in my heart.

--Madeleine L'Engle

This poem warms me from my head to my toes. If we ever have a daughter, don't be surprised if her name is Madeleine. :)
