and I am
Each time that I switch on the light
A Miracle it seems to me
That I should rediscover sight
And banish dark so utterly.
One moment I am bleakly blind,
The next exultant life I find.
Below the sable of the sky
My eyelids double darkness make.
Sleep is divine, yet oh how
I Am glad with wonder to awake!
To welcome, glimmery and wan
The mighty Miracle of Dawn.
For I've mad moments when I seem,
With all the marvel of a child,
To dwell within a world of dream,
To sober fact unreconciled.
Each simple act has struck me thus
When everything I see and do
So magical can seem to me,
How vain it is to seek the True,
The riddle of Reality...
So let me with joy lyrical
Proclaim all Life a Miracle!
