Within the bounds of the universe
Grows a seed of its own the first
Out of ecstasy life takes root
Hid yet received as the silent dew.
Within the bounds but unbound within
A soul awakes where none had been
Unfolds a world which, unconstrained
Alters the place herein contained.
Love is a seed which sheds its fruit
Upon hard earth or indifferent brute
Yet sweetens the place where grace has passed
Waking our smiles like blades of grass
Precious little one, who might you be
Wringing the heart of its tears and glee
Now for the present we wait and see
Wait for the flower escaping the seed
