      Certain things

Like a grain of sand

Gather to a greatness


Perhaps through some law of Nature

Or the Creator's subtle hand

Often such things


Sink into memory

By their sheer denseness

And quality. And resurface


From time to time

As a haunting refrain

Of our joys and pain


Yes, certain things-

By quirk of Nature

Or the Lord's guiding hand


In the oyster of the brain

Like the grain of sand

Pass into the sublime.
