    A Deck of Cards

    There's Chess and Checkers, Parcheesi and Bingo, Monopoly and games galore
    But imbedded, ingrained in a deck of cards is immersed the Wisdom of yore
    The Heart is the Animal Kingdom, the Club the kingdom of Plants
    the Diamond reigns over the Minerals and the Spade, the Metal's lance

    They are elements of Fire and Air and those of Water and Earth
    from the Valley of Kings and the banks of the Nile at the time of Egypt's birth
    The King and Queen and Jack together are the Trinity we hold so dear
    Twelve of these in a deck of cards are the months contained in a year

    In Winter and Fall dress warm, in Summer and Spring dress cute
    But it's not coincidence that these 4 Seasons are also the deck's 4 suits.
    With the Jack as eleven, the Queen as twelve, the King as thirteen once more
    when added to the cards from one to ten equals three hundred and sixty-four
    And the Joker is 1 making 365 and this we'll handle with care
    In a mere deck of cards, it's the number of days on Earth we find in a year.

    But honored and counted in a single deck are 13 cards in each suit
    for the number of times 'round the planet the Moon makes its yearly pursuit
    A deck's 52 cards, a year's 52 weeks share a number that each one sees
    is equal to the incline of the Great Pyramid which slopes at 52 degrees
    And the Pyramid's height times a billion will stack up like cards, each one
    for 93 million miles thru Space, the distance of Earth to the Sun.

    Wow.

    Never before have I seen it so clear.

    That's more than just coincidence and presented with so much style and grace.

    Peace.
