Maimonides Discourses on the One (2016)
Oxford English Dictionary (OED) Links Off
Glory be to the one of a hundred names
for the gift of the marvellous and the mundane.
The one who causes the sun to wheel, the sky to rain.
The one who causes the stars to shine, the moon to wane.
The one who conducts the winds, the birds’ refrain.
The one who shatters the seas’ sinews into waves.
The one who commands the sap of vine and grain.
The one cried to by the soldier in the arms of pain.
The one who grants the atheist a clever brain.
