There is exultation of snow
When it is fallen and silent,
All man's machinery

Silence in court before a judge,
Silence heavy as balanced stone between stars,
Distances untroubled by any sound,

The energy of your beating heart,
My love,
Spinning pinwheel galaxies
Forever outward,
The silent mystery of life made visible,
The universe agape in awe,

Every pumping convulsion,
Heart or nucleus or galaxy,
a million celestial cells alive,
motors in them turning out hormones,
data banks of their own DNA,
perfect working copies of themselves,
resonating with the silent mind of God.
