Creation Made Like Hope


Ethereal and supreme
Of tersest heaven it
has pronounced a daily storm
While hours have been supreme, it has
had hours in its
glee
A purple name
has covered the fans of sovereign
things about its
existence
Has raised and has rased, but
there has been no death
in these mornings

Has experienced and has perched
Has put up with it and has disinvested
Has raised and has razed
Has pondered and has asked
Has said and has raised
