SONNET, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The starry flower, the flower-like stars that fade
Last Line: Stippled orion on the midnight blue.
Subject(s): Pfrayer; Creation; God

The starry flower, the flowerlike stars that fade
And brighten with the daylight and the dark,
The bluet in the green I faintly mark,
Or glimmering crags with laurel overlaid,
Even to the Lord of light, the Lamp olf shade,
Seem one to me, nor less divinely made
Than the crowned moon or heaven's great hierarch.
And so, dim grassy flower and night lit spark
Still move me on and upward for the True,
Seeking through change, growth, death, in new and old,
The full in few, the statelier in the less,
With patient pain; always remembering this:
His Hand, who touched the sod with showers of gold,
Stippled Orion on the midnight blue.
