Forever He has been God.

Walk back through the lanes of time,

Mid tracks of history odd,

Gaze upward through “robin-egg” skies,

Search beneath solid earth’s sod.

Of strata, phylum and gene,

Or travel the wide sky over,

In fiction’s fantastic machine.

God’s there in chubby molecule and

In DNA’s ladder so lean.


Old history’s filled with mementos,

Dates for death and for birth,

Biographers struggle to cover

Lone sorrow and congregate mirth,

But no birthday is found for God.

Years cannot measure His worth.
