A Masterpiece under Repair (part I)


A Masterpiece under Repair (part I)
The crown of creation
The Master Creator’s perfection
In Eden enthroned with dominion
Above all other creation
The Masterpiece created

Astray the masterpiece went
A wrong choice settled upon
From the express command
After obeying a lie from the enemy
The Masterpiece disobeyed

The wrong choice grave consequences bore
Consequences that eternity last
But the Master Creator intervened
With a divine intervention
The Masterpiece to repair

And now the Masterpiece under repair brought
A second chance given
The original intent to regain
Imparting in the Masterpiece the divine intent
The Masterpiece under repair

To undergo a repair so strenuous
A repair that prunes the unwanted branches
A pruning that pain leaves
But right character and divinity imparts
A Masterpiece under repair

A character in eternity to spend
The Creator to reflect
In all life’s aspect
A holy dominion to manifest
A Masterpiece under repair

An epitome of divinity
A divinity of right principles
The divine command to express
Across all creation varieties
A Masterpiece under repair

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
