Century 1 Quatrain 2 : A simple tree
« on: December 04, 2013, 03:19:34 PM »

Hi,

I think Century 1 Quatrain 2 is about a beautiful simple tree:

The stem on the main node in the middle of the boughs
Of water he models  ( mo(u)lds)  & the leafage & the trunk (or root)
A fear & trembling voice through the twigs (when stormy weather, howling )
Divine splendor, the divine settled nearby

La verge en main mie au milieu de branches ,
De l'onde il moulle & le limbe & le pied ,
Un peur & voix fremient par les manches ,
Splendeur divine , le divin pres s'aied

He = God
The divine = the tree itself
