that curious sea flower tossed upon the shore,
that wayside violet that screens the dew drop from the sun,
that winding stream,
that leafy grove–
Christ formed and penciled them all.

scented the air with its fragrance, and
hollowed out the depth of that expansive ocean, dimpled with beauty by the gentle breeze–or awesome in its grandeur, when trod by the storm.
