 ‘Water drawn on the Easter morning is, like that at Christmas, holy and healing …’  sentence from Wikipedia entry on Easter:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%92ostre

they say
water drawn on
easter morning
like that at
Christmas dawning
shall be ‘holy
and healing’
so saying
set me in
reverie
that the
fish the eels
of the deep
shall be ‘holy
and healing’
the foam touched
shell the bird
pert on the
swell the whale
at the edge of
winnowed sunlight
gliding down
in shadow
the
succulent arms
of squid
pulsing ink
in retreat
the submarine volcano
bleeding upward
from the trench
shall be
holy and
healing.
