Each time that I switch on the light
A Miracle it seems to me
That I should rediscover sight
And banish dark so utterly.
One moment I am bleakly blind, The next--exultant life I find.
Below the sable of the sky My eyelids double darkness make.
Sleep is divine, yet oh how I Am glad with wonder to awake! To welcome, glimmery and wan The mighty Miracle of Dawn.
For I've mad moments when I seem, With all the marvel of a child, To dwell within a world of dream, To sober fact unreconciled.
Each simple act has struck me thus-- Incredibly miraculous.
When everything I see and do So magical can seem to me, How vain it is to seek the True, The riddle of Reality .
So let me with joy lyrical Proclaim all Life a Miracle!
