Best Poem of Adeline Foster

~if There Be No God

~ If There Be No God

If there be no God,
Then all the stars, that in their place
Have aeons roamed abroad,
Would long ago have lost the trace
Of orbits-if there be no God.

If there be no God,
Then justice in the heart of man
Would be a fake-a senseless fraud;
Each for himself alone would stand-
No honor-if there be no God.

One Gift

ONE GIFT


One gift, of all the gifts you gave,
Lives through eternity,
One gift I value more than all
The gifts you gave to me.
One gift was more than I could ask
If I had asked the moon,

[Hata Bildir]
