God Revealed as an Infant by Raymond A. Foss

God descended from heaven
onto this mortal plane
revealed as an infant
to suffer and die in pain

But more than that one moment
that time when Christ walked the earth
God revealed in moments
coincidences we cannot explain

One such time for me happening
when I was far from home on a trip
on the waters of the Allagash
reminded of his providence

The man who I asked about the found paddle
lying abandoned in the brush
was the contractor working
on the bank where my uncle worked

Hundred miles from either of our homes
from different directions we had come
but God revealed to me
now in my memory
how close we all are together
what a comfort in his providence

memory from 1976
the bank was in Westfield, MA
and I lived in Claremont, NH.
The Allagash was 500 miles from home
and 400 miles from the bank
