"...the blue sapphire of the year..." (by an Original Orthodox Rebel)

Thou hast not made, or taught me, Lord, to care
For times and seasons---but this one glad day
Is the blue sapphire clasping all the lights
That flash in the girdle of the year so fair---
When thou wast born a man, because alway
Thou wast and art a man, through all the flights
Of thought, and time, and thousandfold creation's play.

(George MacDonald, Diary of an Old Soul)
