How Explain the Miracle of Light
Music: Sonata K108.
By Domenico Scarlatti. Performed by John Sankey.
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
|How explain the
miracle of light?|
A lamp's a miracle, refueled or no.
Nor is there aught that ought be more than night,
Unless some unmade maker make it so.
Know that nothing is but miracles,
Kindled from the void we know not how;
And God, if God there be, the greatest miracle,
Here within the sepulcher of now.
