Posts Tagged ‘Creator in His infinite variety’

God formed hills with curving inclines, [1]

He likes ovals, egg-shapes, and “nearly rounds.”

God made slight bends and flowing lines,

He created “almost flats” and sloping grounds.

 

Man tries, by human contrast,

To make a perfectly straight string.

Right angles stick to him (too fast)

A wobble is a hated, ugly thing.

 

A straight line is man’s necessity,

Making it plumb and level too.

The Creator in His infinite variety,

Finds no new curve “hard” to do.

 

God, in surest sovereignty and might,

Makes His world full of slight bends.

But He made His prime creature’s sight,

To see perfection in parallel ends.
