you are all light,
in you there is no darkness.
Let your light shine upon us in all its radiance...
The evergreens we planted through the back fields
are tall now; infuse the sky like deep ink.
All that autumn afternoon we tucked their roots
into the dark cups of earth;
arranged them in rows of bright triangles
like icons of the trinity;
where, now, they glow transparent in their time,
stand like chapels of starlight,
where God still emblazons their groves--
is dropping cones of fire
over the ghosts of green
and the brushed frost's sheen.
