MY DESIGNER
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
1981

The light of a thousand thousand suns cannot describe
that home from which I come
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .and to which I go,

from which this worldly house is but
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . one night’s lodging.

He who designed that home fashioned as well
. . . . the call of the sparrow,
. . . . the keen of the hawk,
. . . . the wind on which they ride

. . . . dewdrops, raindrops, rivers and seas

. . . . joy in the morning,
. . . . that sweet pain at the setting of the sun

. . . . rocks, and those which dwell therein,
. . . . amethysts, rubies, emeralds and pearls

. . . . all the green and growing things,
. . . . blood, bones, and the sparkling stream of thought
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .that moves them

And the very Designer who made all these
. . . . has made me so very rich, indeed

That all there was, and all there is,
. . . . and all there ever shall be

Abides right here, beneath my palm
. . . . in the very heart of hearts
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .   . of me.
