1879 - Rest on the Flight into Egypt
by Luc Olivier Merson, French (1846-1920)

Nestled in the arms of antiquity,
cold stone in the dark of night
a light ignites,
drawing us to the center of being,
new life
despite the impossible,
despite everything that says no,
despite the icy grasp of fear
that melts
with that first glimpse of love
in the reflection
before you.
