God remembered Noah

From the October 1981 issue of The Christian Science Journal

God remembered
the man who built his ark
of sturdy stuff,
pitched against hate,
windowed high for radiance,
buoyed with faith
to lift a world up.

Noah remembered God—
that Love who filled
the earth the heaven the sea
with splendid forms
all benisoned with grace,
now mercy-touched
to calm assurance:
refuge from the flood.

The ark of consciousness,
rainbowed with Spirit,
exalts us still—
above mortality —
and sets us gently
on His holy hill.
