Make-believe and everyday living look forward to completion in the transmuting realism of the revealed Word. He makes all myths true and life itself mythical in his person, human and divine. . .
Christ creates and sustains nature: all things are from him and in him, stars, wind, and sky. . .
The hand. . . that draws men and stars into being is stretched out everywhere in gracious nature to aim the graceless heart providentially back to its temporal and eternal beginning. Jesus is the "Orion of light" - harbinger of spring's "scroll-leaved flowers, lily showers" - that mildly and steadily pursues men and directs them to their mark. He rises, a transfigured hero, over a world no longer bound by winter and night. . .
