Daniel Klawitter- A Poem

When Wonder Turns To Praise
For this is an experience which is characteristic of a philosopher,
this wondering: this is where philosophy begins and nowhere else.
--Plato, Theaetetus.
But Mary treasured all these words
and pondered them in her heart. 
The Gospel of Luke, 2:19.
A mother
must be made
of much more
than mere maternity
to birth a child
so adored
and enamored of eternity.
For the Holy Ghost
made the Lord of Hosts
a temple inside your womb
and when you said “Yes”
the angels confessed
that the devil’s reign was doomed.
No one expected so much
from one so small…
-Holy Theotokos-
full of grace.  We ponder
the wonder
of it all.
