Act One

From the July 1997 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Let the music begin
in the beginning God
the One
the only

creating
the everlasting to everlasting

not as Adam
an act of serendipity
(the mathematics of dust)

but in the calculus of Spirit
the One
the only
performs

the language of light
which is the language of Love
the Conductor's stroke

between
the unity of silence
and the unison of harmony

the morning stars' spontaneous song
and our own sound
sons' and daughters'
joyful shout
perfect notes
letting the music
begin.
