Bubbles, a fish much loved, departs this shore
for rivers that will never fail, nor dry
beneath the light of blue, yet sunless sky,
lit by the Lamb that shines for evermore.
If lamb and lion lie beside the tree
from which comes life unlimited and sweet,
and all that tasted flesh have grass to eat,
a place is saved for every bird and bee.
If man was sent to care for all the world,
does God reject what man was sent to rule?
And though the Fall has made all nature cruel,
around the feet of God there will be curled
many a creature that has served him well;
and in his love forever they will dwell.
