Water falls in pure-white allegro formations
Dancing in sunlight,
Inscribing a perfect circle 
On the fountain’s small pond,
As holy, as soul-nurturing
As any Eucharistic wafer 
Ever hoped to be,

While overhead, 
A single white cloud,
Suspended in crystal blue clarity,
Casts its narrow shadow, 
Into the center,
The way a wine-dipped wafer does,

In all this sunlight,
