"God the Artist" by Dag Hammarskjӧld

“God the Artist”

You take the pen
and the lines dance.
You take the flute,
and the notes shimmer.
You take the brush,
and the colours sing.
So all things have meaning and beauty
in that space beyond time where you are.
How, then, can I hold back anything from you?

Dag Hammarskjӧld (1905-1961)
Secretary-General of the United Nations (1953-1961)
Nobel Peace Prize Winner

Portrait of Dag Hammarskjöld, 1959.
