just large enough for fire to warm

rain to cool

apples to satisfy

 

just small enough to ride a horse

climb a tree

ride waves upon the sea

 

large enough for skin and bone

small enough for air to cool

strength enough to change a world

weak enough to seek for God

 

all about us calls out His truth, His life

will brook no dissenting voice

we are at home within our skin

upon this world within unnumbered stars

because He has made it so

and for that reason alone

 

and the wonder of it too many escapes
