For but a moment,
As I sat upon a lakeside deck,
The world seemed, as it were,
To come to a stop.

Not a breeze turned a leaf,
Not a bee dared to take flight,
Not a wave lapped upon the shore.
Everything in everything, so to speak,
Took a short rest.

And I imagined God on the Seventh Day
     when He had finished all His work,
          and for a moment He so saw
               everything in everything
                    at rest, and He said
                         it was good.

Genesis 2:2-3
