to pray suffer such indigent love unknown
yet same vein courses all life through
in never-ending beauty, unveiling of
eternal body splendid, that imperfect
diamond creator spirit shines

where the forever gift is born
and in the perpetrators mind 
becomes again that one great joy
everlasting in the flesh absorbed
