Pearly Whirly Poem by St. Ephraim of Syria

This poem by St. Ephraim of Syria called “The Pearl”

In the pearl of time
Let us behold that of eternity;
The pearl itself is full,
for its light is full;
Neither is there any cunning worker who can steal from it;
For its wall is its own beauty,
Yea, its guard also!
It lacks not,
since it is entirely perfect.
