A Sonnet by George K. Johnson (1920-2007)

O, holiest of holies, Triune Host
Of all that is, unknown and known to us.
Most gracious Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
Who are our faith's tripartite nucleus.
We share a magic macro/micro world
Of Your sublime and ongoing creation
While You Incarnate have our souls unfurled
With lessons how to seek love's celebration.
But even more, as Father/Son combined
You baptized us with Spirit all Your own
That guides us unto You where we shall find
Eternal joy in peace we've never known.
Your comfort and support are blessèd reason
For us to praise Your Trinity this season.
