Praise of Days and Oaks


  19

I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree... (Isaiah 41:19)

The daring of a thousand days
as many oaks, dotting the sylvan-sphere
a million thoughts dangling in the deep
Thou, God, art my overseer;
my Master, spreading goodness far and wide
no conditions
(but the devil loves exceptions)

Good things come from the Lord,
new life, new sproutings, new
plenteousness
Set aside for all that call upon His name
all who have been rescued,
then sanctified,
honoring the blood shed by His Son
the Lord and King, the Christ
