Love's Name






when psalms surprise me with their music

  and antiphons turn to rum
  the spirit sings; the bottom drops out of my soul.
  
  and from the  center of my cellar, love,
  louder than thunder
  opens a heaven of naked air.
  
  new eyes awaken.
  
  i send love's name into the world with wings
  and songs grow up around me like a jungle.
  choirs of all creatures sing the tunes  
  your spirit played in Eden..
  
- Thomas Merton (Maria Lodewicus)
