Every Common Bush

From Aurora Leigh, book seven, by Elizabeth Barrett Browning:

Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes:
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries…

It’s not Christian haiku, especially not in its looooong context.  But it ought to be.
