Within a tiny shadow great surprises hide.
Come, and I’ll display for you what is held inside.
First, some blackbird laughter, threaded with fine silk,
Then some wine that sparkles, if you don’t like milk.
You’ll also see a comet blazing as it goes,
And something not as fiery: a pale desert rose.
Another thing you’ll find there (keep an open mind):
The deeds of righteous people, generous and kind.
The world holds more surprises than anyone can dream,
And in the darkest places, surprises reign supreme.
What? You don’t believe me? You think that I tell lies?
My advice to you, my friend: Open both your eyes!
