      Like a Mother ever-awed ...

      By Gila Gevirtz

       

      Like a mother ever-awed by the beauty of her child,
      God sees the goodness of Creation.
      Overflowing with love,
      God takes pleasure in riding the crests of the great ocean waves
      and smelling the blossoms of spring's bouquet.
      God rejoices in each species and the sanctity of its work
      the cows whose udders fill with milk,
      the bees that make sweet amber flow,
      trees that hold both nest and fruit,
      and humans who till the soil, weave cloth,
      rear their young and care for their elders.
      And on the Sabbaththe Day of Rest
      God bids the angels bless Creation,
      saying "Shalom aleichem. May peace be with you."
