ARE YOU NOT A GOD?
By Philip Gray
Since you have been intimate with God,
Have you not been the quiet reed
Swaying above the waters by the shore?
Since you have laid your breast
Upon the breast of God, your lover,
Have you not become
The spread of windless silk upon the sea?
Since you have beheld white poems
Swung for scarves
To cover His white shoulders,
Have you not been more in love
With your own soul?
And has not Peace
Kneeled gently by your knee?
Say, are you not transfigured,
Comrade of my dearest hours?
Are you not a God?
