Name unnamed, hidden and shown, 
knowing and known, Gloria!

Beautifully moving, ceaselessly forming,
growing, emerging with awesome delight,
Maker of Rainbows, glowing with color,
arching in wonder,
energy flowing in darkness and light:

Name unnamed, hidden and shown, 

knowing and known, Gloria!

Spinner of chaos, pulling and twisting,
freeing the fibers of pattern and form,
Weaver of Stories, famed or unspoken,
tangled or broken,
shaping a tapestry vivid and warm:

Name unnamed, hidden and shown, 

knowing and known, Gloria!

Nudging Discomfort, prodding and shaking,
waking our lives to creative unease,
Straight-talking Lover,
checking and humbling jargon and grumbling,
speaking the truth that refreshes and frees:

Name unnamed, hidden and shown, 

knowing and known, Gloria!

Midwife of Changes, skillfully guiding,
drawing us out through the shock of the new,
Woman of Wisdom, deeply perceiving,
never deceiving,
freeing and leading in all that we do:

Name unnamed, hidden and shown, 

knowing and known, Gloria!

Daredevil Gambler, risking and loving,
giving us freedom to shatter your dreams,
Life-giving Loser, wounded and weeping,
dancing and leaping,
sharing the caring that heals and redeems.

Name unnamed, hidden and shown, 

knowing and known, Gloria!
