It’s easy to invent a Life —
God does it — every Day —
Creation — but the Gambol
Of His Authority —

It’s easy to efface it —
The thrifty Deity
Could scarce afford Eternity
To Spontaneity —

The Perished Patterns murmur —
But His Perturbless Plan
Proceed — inserting Here — a Sun —
There — leaving out a Man —
