Fiat

Fiat1964-110-1-CX (2)

 

Mary said ‘Fiat’ and He was, in time;

flesh of her flesh

bone of her bone.

And the Infinite

was contained and grew.

And evening came and morning came

the First day.

Mary said ’Fiat Lux’

as she gave light: she brought forth.

And there was Light.

And evening came and morning came,

the fullness of time

the ninth month.

She smoothed his eyelids

and he opened his eyes

to meet her gaze.

She said simply:

‘It is very good.’

Is it right to put the words of God

on Mary’s lips?

Well, the Word was in her heart,

Jesus the fruit of her womb.
