Flight into Egypt

… driver appeared from nowhere.

In desert, selected air for a miracle
by similarity, happen overnight,
they burned fire. The snow swept
cave, not anticipating its role,
baby asleep in a golden halo
hair, then gained rapid skill
glow - not only in the dark-haired Power,
now, - but really like a star,
as long as the earth exists: everywhere.
