Weaving the Covenant

Square the frame;
thread the loom.
Draw straight and
bowstring-taut the cords.

With harness and heddle
pattern the covenant cloth.
Throw color-threaded shuttle,
straight as an arrow,
swift as pure thought,
to fill the sovereign space.
Enlarge the fabric
of stake-stretched tent.
Increase the temple-tall poles.

With reed press tight,
rich patterns of light.
Extend and bind
borders with gold.

Prepare royal robes;
spread canopied veil.
Dress Earth to
embrace the Lord!
